Apple Cinnamon Teacake

This has been on fairly high rotation of late. I have tried it two ways – the way the recipe says and my way. Either are delicious and fine.

Just so you know, I double the cake batter mix but leave the amount of apple as it as I don’t have the size loaf tin Karen Martini suggests.
