This apples with pumpkin cake has its secret in apples. So easy to find year-round fruit and so economic makes magic in this cake that is juicy and flavorful and with a crunchy texture thanks to the crumble that covers it.

With this recipe of apple cake with pumpkin, I also announce a new collaboration on the blog with Ambrosia with whom I start a collaboration that I hope will last a long time and thanks to which I have been lucky enough to be able to try these rich apples.

It's a few blocks whose origin is in Canada but now occur around the world. They have the hard flesh and a beautiful color. 7 months of the year (from October to April) occur and they can be found easily in the market. So for a few months we are going to make rich recipes with them.

In the magic of these blocks lies the secret of the recipe today. With them I made a Compote of Apple making that cake is very juicy on the inside. It is also a very attractive recipe. An ideal easy but original cake for an evening at home, a snack of friends or to weigh it to work.

It has also pumpkin so it is a sponge cake with seasonal ingredients known to cinnamon, fall, and of course apples! You know that my son is my best critic and directly gave it a 10. I have to tell you that the first time I bake recipe I did it in the form of individual cupcakes. Javi took them to school and there the vote was unanimous: had to be repeated. So I did but I decided to give way cake. I hope you enjoy it as much as all the children of the school.
