Fresh Apple Cake

Oh the weather is cool, the nights are long and I just want to hunker 

down in the evenings by a glowing fire with a little treat.  



So-I found a perfect cake to satisfy my sweet tooth without going 

over the top.  I am even thinking this might be one of the desserts 

that I make for Thanksgiving.



This cake is filled with fresh apples, toasted pecans and a perfect

frosting made with fresh honey.  I think we might be able to even 

say that this cake is healthy! wink...



I have really become a fan of bundt cakes, and I will tell you why.

They seem to be no fail, easy to mix, love the consistency, simple 

to decorate, stunning to serve and are great for transporting.
