Stef’s Kitchen Creations ~ Glazed Apple Cake

 

October is here which means we’ve had our annual family trip to the orchards in the beautiful Nova Scotia valley. I found the apples were excellent this year. My son eats more apples a day than I can count and I love trying new recipes. When the apples get tiresome I use the rest to make batches of applesauce for eating and baking. I like to substitute applesauce for oil when I can. It keeps recipes moist and is healthier than the oil most recipes call for.
