Cardamom Apple Cake: One of Teaselwood Farmhouse’s Fall Faves! / by charity buchika

Applesauce. Apple crisp. Apple pie. Apples dipped in caramel. When it comes to apple recipes, you might think you’ve made it all. Well hold on to your hat. We at Teaselwood have got a new one for you and it’s ridiculously scrumptious. Three words: Cardamom Apple Cake. We tried a variation of this cardamom cake last summer and we were so obsessed with it we had to try this version. So grab an apple from the few leftover ones that remain after this year’s family trip to the orchard and follow the recipe below for a citrus-y, super moist, flavorful, perfect-for-nibbling-at-anytime-of-day cake.
