Honey Apple Cake

My great aunt Marie originally made this recipe. She and Uncle Johnny owned an apple orchard in the mountains of Colorado. Uncle Johnny found great joy intending to the orchard, and Aunt Marie used her love of cooking to showcase the beautiful apples.

Enjoy this super moist cake for a delightful dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of warm cream sauce. A sweet breakfast with a little yogurt to the side is never a bad way to start the day either!

I have put my spin on the recipe by using whole wheat Einkorn flour, but using unbleached or whole wheat flour is delightful as well.
