Apple Pound Cake with Cinnamon Glaze

StumbleUponLinkedInShare

It’s finally fall.
Can you hear the excitement in my voice?

We’re still not cool, but it is getting cooler.
Thank you Mother Nature.

We are so fortunate to live near a region of California know as Apple Hill.
This area is full of small family operated farms, many organic, and many also offer “you pick” fruits.
We love spending our fall afternoons visiting the different growers, but the best  part is the “tasting”.
Apple cider, apple doughnuts, fritters, pies, and of course caramel apples.  You name it, they got it.

You’d think we get sick of apples, but we don’t. I cannot tell you how many we go through each week, and I LOVE cooking with them.

Today’s apple awesomeness…

It’s perfect toasted for breakfast, as an after school snack, or even for dessert.
