Foodie Collection of ’30 Fall Apple Recipes’ & Skinny Apple Spice Cake Recipe

Fall is here, it is my favorite season of the year!  I love the trees changing colors, the crispness in the air and baking.  I especially love September/October because it is apple season, my favorite fruit, and most of my recipes include apples in them.  So in honor of my favorite season and favorite fruit, I put together this awesome Foodie roundup of 30 Fall Apple Recipes.



To go along with this amazing apple recipe roundup, I figured I would include a delicious, easy and skinny recipe to share with you all today.  That is my three main goals when it comes to creating a dish; easy, skinny and delicious!  I am a full time working mom, I do not have the hours in the day to spend in the kitchen creating 20 ingredient dishes.  So, my recipes need to be quick and easy!  The Apple Spice Cake I made the other day, certainly combines all three requirements.  It is super easy to prepare, delicious and I “skinnied” it all up!  Hope you enjoy the recipe, my taste buds sure did!
