Apple Pound Cake | Snap a Bite

The new apple harvest is in! Even if your disposition towards doctors isn't particularly bad, it's hard not to snack on these bad boys at least once a day. If you find it hard to limit yourself to only one, and also like variation, then I might have the perfect solution for you.
Apple cake!

Apple Pound Cake | Snap a Bite


My favorite fruit, wrapped in a fluffy blanket.
A slice of comfort in the morning, a slice at the office in the afternoon, a slice in the evening while I'm all wrapped up myself on the couch. We might even have to sneak in some (chocolaty) milk.
It’s easy to seduce my boyfriend with this delicious delight, even though he’s not an apple addict like myself.

This is a sugary little pick-me-up. Enchantment on the go, it’s savory from the get-go, very hard to let go, and absolutely impossible to forgo. So enjoy this one, and remember, as I always tell myself: fruit’s good for you!
