Fresh Apple Cake

Fresh Apple Cake

Luke grew up with his family making this fresh apple cake in Scotland. Over the years it became a family staple recipe that everyone loves and still makes today! It's a moist light cake that is not overly sweet with chunks of fresh apple. The best part it's super simple to make!
