Tarta de Manzana (Apple Sponge Cake)
- 2 apples

Who doesn't love sponge cake? And who doesn't love apple pie? Well, this recipe combines the best of both! It's inspired by the tarta de manzana that's so popular in Spain. This cake is light, tasty and is the perfect afternoon snack to enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea! If you don't have apples handy or want to try a variation, you can easily turn this into a pear sponge cake. Just swap the apples for pears and keep everything else as is. It's that easy!
This is my go-to recipe if I have people stopping by. Not only does it taste great, but the aroma it gives the house makes it mouthwatering!
