Apple and candied ginger cake

I wanted to make some snacks , something with autumn flavour. On my last visit to Chinatown, I bought candied ginger and had not used until yesterday.

I decided then, to bake this apple cake, because I'm still looking for the taste of ONE apple cake that I ate in college, is not the same,of course, but it was delicious, moist and spongy and I hope you enjoy

  • 175g brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

I like candied ginger on it's own and in baked goods. Like the idea with apple. Nice combo.
