Apple Spice Cake

Apple Spice cake is a quick and easy dessert perfect for any occasion. This recipe is easily made to be dairy-free by subbing out the butter for a plant-based option and the milk from another milk substitute.  My sister has a dairy allergy, so this is one of the deserts that are easily made to fit her dietary restrictions. Of course, it’s still just as wonderful with dairy, I prefer the recipe with dairy. I originally found this recipe on Pinterest but have made some changes to suit my liking.
