When my best friend C and two other of my good friends were visiting a few weeks ago, C asked (demanded 😉 me to make apple cake. Of course I complied 😉 Very simple vanilla cakelets filled with chopped apple and decorated with sliced apple. Very simple but very good 🙂
For those of you who are curious how big I look 8 months pregnant (I look bigger in real life btw, my dad took a flattering picture 😉
Vanilla apple cakelets
