German Apple Cake and Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

German Apple Cake and Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

I”ve never made a German Apple cake before, but if the recipe has apples and cinnamon in it I’m game!

This cake smelled so good while it was baking that I couldn’t wait till I could taste it. And taste it I did, straight from the oven. I have zero patience (hee hee). My taste buds were in heaven with the first bite…soft apple chunks, a slightly crispy top and cinnamony super moist cake , ahhhhh! I had to have more, and the cream cheese frosting wasn’t even on it yet!

As far as I’m concerned , this cake is good just like this. I didn’t have tart apples , what I had was yellow delicious, which I think made it sweeter and perfect without the cream cheese frosting. BUT! There is a cream cheese frosting for this little baby and that was good too! Whether you like it with or without frosting this cake needs to be made by people who adore apples and cinnamon.

Chocolate Orange Cupcakes
I think we need some cupcakes for dessert after this delightful dinner. How about Chocolate Orange Cupcakes. These cupcakes get they’re orange flavor from the zest and juice of an orange. Remember the chocolate that use to look like an orange, it even had sections in it like an orange would, I can’t remember the name of it but I loved those things! These cupcakes are brownie like and gooey, don’t you just love gooey! They’re also made with mayonnaise, that’s what makes them so moist. Throw in some chocolate chips and you’ve got a cupcake that’s (in the words of our 11 yr old daughter) AWESOME!!!! No frosting required .
