Apple Dapple Cake

20161009_164730

Along with this years Thanksgiving cheesecake (Skor – which was not awesome) I made Apple Dapple Cake.  To me Thanksgiving just screams apples and cinnamon, it seems to be a fall thing.  With my horrid past in pie making, I thought I would take a different approach with an apple dessert.

I found this recipe on Pinterst, it is from Southern Plate.  Great website, check it out. When I saw all the photos I knew I had to try it.

    We tried the sauce once cooled a little from the pot. OMG! Forget the cake, just make the sauce and eat it with a spoon.  Heavenly!

    Slowly starts to soak in…

    Everyone said they liked it, but I didn’t.  I was quite disappointed, only finished a couple bites.  It was quite dry and flavourless. I thought it would be moist and almost gooey with all that sauce that soaked in.  Nope, heavy, dense, blah!
