Moist Apple Cake topped with Pumpkin seeds

“Vegetarian is an old Indian word for bad hunter”..Yes,that is my DH’s favorite quote, who also happens to be a hard core carnivore. So you can imagine how our 6 years of marital life would have been. The omnivore me  trying to convince the meat lover about the hazards of being a red meat eater and he in turn  persuading me to try all “delicious” stuff. The other day we went to a Japanese restaurant for dinner
DH: The beef tastes awesome, you should seriously try this!
Me: No way..
DH: The cow will feel bad if we don’t eat it. It’s the cows destiny to be a good steak one day. So you are not letting the poor animal fulfill its destiny!
Me: #&!!!! Huh? Ok I better don’t reply to that  will be an insult to my intelligenceJ.(I will let my actions speak). Gives him one tight pinch
DH: OOO! That hurts!!
Me: So a pinch hurts so badly isn’t it? So imagine the pain the poor animal went through before it became your favorite steak!
DH: Silence ..followed by a big wideJ

So let me stop the husband wife argument story and come back to today’s recipe, the moist apple cake. Whoever who said Baking is therapeutic is absolutely right and baking with fresh fruits is even more fun and exciting. The original recipe called for margarine, as I had some eggs which I want to use up , I substituted 2 tbspn margarine with 1 egg. So you can go ahead and do the eggless version with some additional butter/oil/margarine
