This is the perfect recipe for Breakfast, Brunch or to share with Friends during the Holidays.
I make this in a Cast Iron Loaf Pan.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
1 - 9" X 5" Loaf Pan brushed generously with Pan Release Mix. (equal parts of Crisco, Vegetable Oil and Flour) I start with 1 C of each mixed well and refrigerated in a Jar. I always have it available for all of my baking needs.

1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
8 TBS Butter, room temperature
1 C Granulated Sugar
2 C Finely Chopped Jonagold Apples that have been peeled and cored.
In a Medium Mixing Bowl:
Pumpkin Pie Spice
In a Large Mixing Bowl with an Electric Hand Mixer:
Mix for 3 - 5 minutes until Creamy Smooth.
Fold in Apples with a Silicone Spatula.
Flour Mixture to the Apple Mixture just until incorporated.
Spoon Batter into the Pan.
Bake for 1 Hour, until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
Remove Pan to a Rack and cool 10 minutes.
Invert the Cake, right side up, onto the Rack to cool completely.
Peace in the Kitchen!
