Rustic Apple Cake (Tea Cake)

Yesterday I was in a mood to bake something very simple but different from the usual recipes of vanilla and chocolate.Browsing through, I found my eyes upon this fantastic recipe with fresh apples.My brain started blowing out thoughts to prepare this cake as my younger kid has started rejecting fruits in the very form.That was easy sneaking way to feed apples and baked home made cakes were his weakness everytime.This cake is very simple but the looks and tastes are different.We all loved each bite of it  and hope you'll enjoy reading this recipe too!!
