Apple Dapple Cake

Apple Dapple Cake
Apple Dapple Cake is so perfect for Fall!
 
 Apple Dapple Cake came from my grandma's depression era recipe box and it is a fall favorite at our home! Made with fresh apples and brown sugar it fills the whole house with a wonderful fragrance and its a very moist and delicious cake. The best is when we are able to find a 'you pick' orchard and bring home fresh apples to make it with! I like to make it in a Bundt pan, the texture seems to come out best and the leftovers are great for breakfast!

How I became Considering frugal

Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffered from each day and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, back in 2011, I decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family could do to change our planet. I did not consult any other parties before I launched this idea. Thankfully my husband, daughter and son are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I am normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I was looking for ways that I could reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. I did succeed in changing our habits a bit and finding ways to reduce our footprint. There were lots of fun epic fails alone the way too! But the biggest change we have made over the course of the last six years, was to move from the mega city of Phoenix to Wyoming where we are about to take an even bigger step and move out on a dirt road in the country where we can expand our hobby bees and more!
