Tuesdays with Dorie - Apple Weekend Cake

I joined this group just last month, and this is the first post since joining. I am excited to be part of a baking group again. It has been far too long. :)

I chose to bake the Apple Weekend Cake. I am a sucker for anything with apple in it, so it was an easy choice for me.

This was super easy to put together and smelled fabulous while it was baking. I did not have any dark rum, so I just upped the amount of vanilla in the recipe. I think my two medium apples may have been on the large side as it seemed there was more apple than batter, but since I like apples (see above paragraph) I didn't mind. I didn't add any nuts or raisins as Dorie suggests, but think I would add nuts when baking it again.

The cake is moist, not too heavy, not too sweet and delicious. I can see toasting a slice and then adding a little butter to it. I can also see warming a slice in the microwave and adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream to it. It would lend itself well to breakfast or dessert.
