A Trip to the Apple Orchard

On this Thanksgiving weekend, I went to an apple orchard with my friend Madison and obviously, I had to make a delicious apple dessert. I decided to make an apple turn over cake inspired by my cousin Angie! This cake is so moist and flavored with cinnamon and sugar, perfect for Thanksgiving! For any cinnamon and brown sugar lovers out there, this one is for you!

Apple Turnover Cake
I was inspired by my cousin Angie for this recipe. This cake is so moist, sweet and cinnamony ! WE LOVE IT! This recipe was surprisingly easy and although it does take a longer time to bake, it makes up for in taste! They recommend that you use golden delicious apples, but it really doesn't matter. This recipe really was the perfect recipe for the Thanksgiving weekend!
