Easy apple cake with rum

Apple cake with rum

This week I made an apple cake. I wanted a special touch, so I added some rum to it. It was a total disaster because I got the cake out of the oven too soon and I had to go to class so there was no more time to bake it a bit more. I never throw away sweet desserts, so when I came back from class I’ve put the apple cake back in the oven. Because of the oven disaster, I wasn’t much of a fan of the cake, but I served the leftover apple cake on my going away party and everyone just loved it.

I wasn’t going to share the recipe, but since you loved it so much: here is it anyway!
