TWD - Apple Muffin Cake means Fall is in the Air!

I was excited to see our Tuesday with Dorie's pick this week.  Apple Muffin Cake.  With fall in the air, it was a perfect choice.  Thank you to our host this week Katrina of Baking with the Boys.  As proof of fall coming, it has been in the 40's here at night.  Brrr.  After a very hot summer, I'm not quite ready for the cold nights.
I used Granny Smith apples.  They are not good for snacking, but great for baking.

I made a couple of changes to Dorie's recipe.  First, I left out the raisens.  I like raisens but I am just raisened out lately.  My cereal in the morning is full of raisens and that is enough for me each day.  Secondly, while the cake was still warm from the oven, I poured a mixture of brown sugar, milk and butter that I had heated up over the top of the cake.  Made it super moist and gave it a little brown sugar taste.

We loved it!  Get the recipe at Katrina's webpage. Just click on the link above.

Thanks for the encouragement. How far apart did you guys live? 2 years is so long... I'm happy it was a happy ending though :)

Wow, that photo of it all in the pan is absolutely mouth-watering! We loved this one...and you are right, Fall is in the Air! I guess I will start going with it. Goodbye, Summer, we will miss you dearly.

The brown sugar toppings sounds wonderful-i'm sure it would keep the cake more moist, not to mention give it a caramel type flavor!
