One of my best friends just moved to Minnesota. It's pretty heart breaking (especially since she went from Arizona summer to cold already!) Naomi is my go to friend for good recipes and exciting things to feed my family. She's the one I call when I see a great deal on some fancy cheese to see if she needs some just in case. When I was picking up a case of Utah peaches last week it made me think of her, so I called to say hi. She said there weren't any peaches to be found in her frigid new home (haha, comparatively at least) but there were apples coming out her ears! When I baked up this quick, easy bread/cake from this week's Tuesdays with Dorie treat, I couldn't help but think of her. I used homemade apple sauce instead of the apple butter, reduced the sugar by about 1/4 cup, and added some extra grated apple. This bread is extra appley (and I'd totally send some Naomi's way if I could!) Thank goodness apples can be found everywhere, from hot Arizona to far away Minnesota, because everyone should make this yummy cake!
Grab the real recipe from Lynne. I'll be back later with a printable version of my highly adapted recipe.
