If you are looking for a delicious and quick apple dish, go with this German Apple Cake recipe from What Megan’s Making. I can always count on Megan’s recipes to be tasty and easy, and this one was no exception.
In fact, I made this cake when we had some new friends over for games. We enjoyed it so much before I knew it, we had just one piece left and I realized I hadn’t taken any photos of the cake sliced and served.
Guess that’s a sign of a good recipe, right?
