Eat: Recipe: Warm Apple Cake with Spiced Butter Cream Sauce

I am so happy that it is finally fall and I can legally break out the pumkin and apple recipes!  (I can be a little wild and I’ve been known to make a pumpkin dessert in July just cause I can’t wait!) Ashley has been asking me to bake with her, so I thought we would whip up this little favorite of mine the other day. It’s a recipe that I remember my grandma making when I was little and it must have stuck with me, because I don’t really remember her making it since I’ve been an adult, but I still crave it!  The good news is it’s super easy and a real crowd pleaser.  And, it has a ton a apples in it, so it has to be good for you, right?
