Sunday Supper – Apple Spice Cake

IMG_8906 We got struck with the tail end of a tropical cyclone this week. It doesn’t feel like summer in NZ until you get a cyclone, and this year we’ve been really lucky to not get one till mid-January even though it felt like our summer started in mid-September with lovely hot sunny days. While we were stuck in side with the rain and crazy winds I craved comfort foods and thought an apple spice cake would be the perfect answer. It helped I had a few apples in the fruit bowl that were only really any good for cooking seeing I had left them there for so long. IMG_8907 IMG_8908 Apple Spice Cake
