Apple and orange cake

What’s not to love about cakes? They’re everyone’s favorite dessert. Try the apple and orange cake!
This cake comes together quickly. Ideal for any time of the day, the apple and orange cake quite literally caters for a late-night after-dinner munch, breakfast the next morning and an afternoon teatime snack; it’s even better the next day.
Suggestion: you can use spelt flour. It may be a healthy option for some people whom are wheat intolerant. It has a tougher husk than wheat and more protein than wheat. Protein in spelt is easy to digest. But it does contain gluten.
