There were about 6 small apples kept pushed around,rolling and dropping when ever I opened the fridge door..Haish..the skin were wrinkled and it seems nobody are interested in eating them..decided to do something out of it and googled for some recipes and got attracted by this recipe based on the good reviews given by those who have tried them...
Made a whole cake in an 8" tray..gave half to my friend and another to my cousin who came visiting..Definitely not my kids kind of cake..but my parents do eat them..So by giving away..it cleared off my mind and definitely my fridge..A nice recipe that worth trying for those who love apple crumble cakes!!!..I guessed you can make into cupcakes for this recipe too..:)
