It’s September! {YAY}! Which means my favorite season of all is upon us….fall! 🍎🍂🎃 I have thoroughly enjoyed summer…however I am ready for the cooler temperatures (hello it was 98 degrees here yesterday), scarves, boots, and allll the fall recipes, including this Paleo Apple Cake!

I have to pause to say that I am a bit of an apple snob! I have been obsessed with delicious apples for as long as I can remember. The reigning champions in my life are Pink Ladies and Honeycrisps. No joke…I even gave a speech in college on the superiority of Honey Crisp Apples (and their origin, science behind their discovery, etc.) and brought a tray full of apple slices to pass out to the class. Yep. I’m an apple nerd.

My husband, however, is the complete opposite. When we got married he thought there were three varieties of apples, red, yellow and green! {sigh}! I totally capitalized on that for a while and bought him whatever variety were on sale (saving cash money because my hubby is an apple monster), and me the {usually} more expensive favorites.

However, after a few years he got wiser and didn’t like his “Ritch apples” as much anymore. He insisted on eating my “Laura apples” and that whole “what’s yours is mine” thing went out the window. I was horrified to open the fridge and find that all  of my apples had been eaten, the {obviously sub-par} apples were left sitting in the drawer. We worked it out and I simply bought more of the good stuff…but it was a trying time in our relationship. 😂🍎

Any who. I used Pink Lady apples in this recipe (a little sweet, a little tart) but you can use any variety of your choosing. Peeling is unnecessary, which makes this Paleo Apple Cake even easier to make. Just be sure to finely dice your apples!

 

This cake is irresistible! My daughter and I kept sneaking bites before dinner, and couldn’t stop! Perfectly sweet, seriously moist, and bursting at the seams with bits of appley goodness!

One of the things I miss the most about living in the Midwest is apple picking! We went every single year and absolutely had a blast!

We thought we found an orchard near us in UT, however it turned out to be more of an “apple jungle” that hadn’t been cared for at all. The apples were tiny, and you needed a machete to walk through the aisles. SAD! We’re going to have to find one this year even if it means driving a few hours.

What about you? Have you ever been apple picking? What’s your favorite apple variety?
