I’m 100% in the Thanksgiving mindset this week. Living and breathing it. Breathing it? Yes because I’m currently surrounded by the densely aromatic smell of freshly baked cake, cinnamon and clove, apples and frosting.* Quintessential fall! Exactly what I need to get me ready for Thanksgiving.
But even better, this Spiced Applesauce Cake (recipe courtesy of one of my favorite food bloggers, Smitten Kitchen) tastes just as good as it smells. It’s incredibly moist and has just the right amount of appley flavor. I even used plain, store-bought applesauce instead of making it myself and it was just as delicious. The recipe is simple and quick – and it’s now my breakfast for the next 3 days.
*I started writing this post when it still smelled delicious and cinnamon-y up in here. Now, we’re doing a 4-hour oven self-cleaning and it currently smells like melting plastic and burnt-to-a-crisp baked goods. Oh the sacrifices we make for Thanksgiving!!
