Apple Fritter Cake

         Ahhh, the smell of fresh bakery goods, apples and cinnamon. Delightful! The thought actually makes my stomach rumble. My mouth is salivating thinking of warm and soft apple fritters with a crispy sugar glaze. Years ago, I had a friend who owned a bakery. I always wondered how she and her husband stayed so in shape. Man, I would blow up like a balloon just working at a bakery.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            How do I store this cake?

The cake will be good sitting on the counter, covered for 5 to 7 days. If you keep it in the refrigerator, you can count on it for up to 2 weeks. That is if you keep it tightly covered.

            Can I freeze this cake?

The apple fritter cake freezes wonderfully. You should wrap it in plastic wrap and then 2 layers of foil. You can also keep it in an airtight container and in the freezer.

            Is there a certain type of apple to use?

You could use any type of apple for this. I do recommend Red Delicious. They are a little sweeter and a whole lot more juicy.

            Do I thaw it on the counter?

You should thaw it overnight in the refrigerator.
