This fresh apple cake is made from scratch. There is no cheating, but don’t be intimidated, because it’s not hard to make. You will need some fresh apples for this apple cake recipe. You can use either granny smith apples, or pink lady apples. Both work great. I also use apple sauce for this recipe. The apple sauce adds more apple flavor, and it also helps the cake stay nice and moist!
