Easy Double Apple Cake

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Our days have been busy in a very quiet way. We are surrounded by hundreds of acres of a national park, centuries of history and quiet. We have ridden our bikes more here in two weeks than in all the time on the peninsula.

We have completed our volunteer training, visited the Vancouver Farmer's Market, located a grocery, the library and I baked this easy cake. Oh and apples.

Apples are usually in our fruit bowl on the table and depending upon the season and what else we are enjoying, they will be eaten quickly or they will remain behind to mellow and soften into a juicy sweetness that begs to be used. In a sauce, or chopped for a salad or in the case of the last two apples in the bowl, this cake.

The kitchen is not large in our new home, but it is complete and comes with a very reliable oven. Which I am grateful for, as baking is something I do regularly. Even though to use this oven, one must get down on their prayer bones, and with head in the oven strike a flame to the pilot tube.

You may add one or two of the optional ingredients to change up your cake from time to time or leave as pure apple, the choice is yours. I added the dates, forgetting that they sink to the bottom and form a sticky layer, delicious, but slices do not come out pretty. Here goes and I must apologize for the lack of photos like I said earlier, it has been a busy time...
