You know that fall is near when September rolls around! The coming seasons are my favorite ones. I’m super excited for fall and the Holidays. I love cozy sweaters, a mug of hot chocolate, and especially that the temperature is going down and I can bake as much as I want without heating up our apartment!

Apples, Pears, and Stone fruits are in season now – and that means it’s time to bake beautiful treats! Today I share with you all my favorite Apple Cake Recipes for Fall. 

Here are my favorite Apple Cake Recipes:

Puff Pastry Walnut Apple Strudel

This Puff Pastry Walnut Apple Strudel is made with a Walnut Raisin Apple filling and doesn’t get a soggy bottom because of my secret ingredient! If you have ever been to Austria or Bavaria you will know why I love Apple Strudel! The warm filling with sweet raisins, soft apples, and warm spices, the flaky crust and the delicious smell makes this dessert one of the best.

    Ok, this is now my second comment tonight. I wrote the first one before poking around your site a bit more. I assume you and Peter are from Germany, maybe even Bavaria? My family is also from that area of Germany and many of the recipes you include are similar to ones I was raised on. How I long for my mom and Oma’s wonderful cooking! . I try to reproduce their meals, but usually fall short as they were wonderful cooks. Nothing fancy, few written recipes, and just delicious!
    I will be following this site now that I found it and look forward to walking down memory lane and bringing back foods and meals I have not remembered from growing up!
    Thank you!

      Yes, you’re right we are from Bavaria 🙂 So nice to meet you! Many of my recipes are for things my Omas used to make when I was little. Julia
