I wrote a haiku the other day, after I saw the most beautiful rainbow of my life. If you are not a fan of Haiku, you might just be after this one.

What does the rainbow have to do with roasted apple cake, you ask. That my friend, is a very good question, and I am happy you asked. Everywhere we look now Autumn in all its glory, is right in front of us. The colorful leaves, falling leaves, rain, smell of rain, rainbows, hot chocolate weather, the color orange, and especially pumpkins, inspire me. Of all the many things they inspire me to do, one of them is bake.
My girls and I were fortunate enough to be invited to accompany my friend, and her wonderful preschool group, to Farmer John’s pumpkin patch. We played in and on their amazingly cool hay maze, and all around their freshly picked pumpkins. We had such a fun time with our friends, my girls and I did not want to leave. When we finally did leave, we marked the end of our visit, by picking out some unique gourds and a pie pumpkin.
Since it was such rainy rustic weather, I thought I would roast the pumpkin, and use some of it to make a rustic dessert. A dessert that would be delicious alongside a cup of hot cocoa, tea, or coffee. As you can see, I roughly chopped the apples and left the peel on for added nutrients, color, and some texture.
This cake is extremely fragrant, not too sweet, and the perfect amount of moist, with little surprise bits of apples and pumpkin. Enjoy this cake with your loved ones, and a warm beverage. This recipe was inspired by A Chow Life’s Apple Cake.
