Harvest Apple Cake with Penuche Icing

harvest apple cake with penuche icingAutumn means cooler temperatures, cozy nights and harvest foods. With the abundance of local pick-your-own apple farms nearby, we took the family to our local orchard to fill up a basket of fresh apples. I can’t think of a better way to spend time with my family and celebrate the foods of fall, than to bake. One of our favourite family recipes is the Harvest Apple Cake. It’s moist and delicious! The Penuche icing is a long standing family recipe that pairs perfectly with the apple cake. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does!
