Fall is here, fall is here! My most favorite time of the year! To start off fall I have a weeks worth of apple recipes for you. To begin apple week, I have applesauce bars for you. Think pumpkin bars, but an apple version made using applesauce.

This cake is moist, flavorful, and perfectly topped with cream cheese frosting. This is a great new recipe to add to your fall baking. I love fall flavors and fall baking. I look forward to it every year.

Apple and pumpkin are those two main ingredients that I can’t wait to use each year. I always dedicate a weeks worth of recipes for each one. This week is apple week and pumpkin week will be coming soon.
