Just got my first peck of beautiful Henderson County Apples! I’m using the Mutzus right now but I’ll be switching it up pretty soon. I’ll be making lots of Caramel Apple cake from here on out through the fall: brown sugar apple cake with caramel cream cheese icing… very old-fashioned, moist and yummy, with 2 pounds of local apples in each batch! And who knows, maybe I’ll get crazy and cook my own local pumpkins this year for my Pumpkin Spice Cake. I’m excited for fall!
