Craving cake, but don’t necessarily have an occasion to make one for? Well then it’s a pretty good thing that you don’t need to wait until your birthday to make this honey-apple cake. This recipe falls under what I call "casual cakes,” meaning cakes that are perfectly suitable for Sunday brunch, afternoon tea, or any random Wednesday night when you need to fulfill a relentless cake craving without having to make something completely over the top. There's a whole chapter in my book dedicated to these cakes without occasion.
With layers of fresh apple cake, honey buttercream, and a touch of crunchy oat crumble, you may even end up devouring a slice of this one for breakfast!
