Amazing Apple Dapple Cake with a Caramel-Pecan Glaze

Spread the love

I don’t post recipes very often, but when I do you better believe they’re my absolute favorites.

Mrs. Spoone’s Apple Dapple cake is a legend where I work. The few times a year when my friend, Veronica, brings her mother’s cake to work, the news spreads like wild-fire. We arrange our work schedules so we can fit coffee and Apple Dapple into our shift.

Thank you, Freida Spoone, for allowing me to share your recipe!
