It wasn’t until the Pike Place Market produce vendors started sampling apples instead of stone fruits that I realized fall was here. With my first bite of Honeycrisp, I began thinking about a recipe Amanda shared last year — an apple cake recipe as easy as it is delicious. Chinese Five Spice adds an extra layer of flavor to a classic family recipe that is perfect in school lunches, with your afternoon tea, or served to your dinner guests.
