Whether it’s fall, winter, or the middle of summer, nothing beats a slice of spice cake, a warm cup of coffee, and good discussion with your closest friends. That includes your book club!

This spice cake made with apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pecans is comforting and delicious.

The addition of the caramel icing on the cake adds a depth of flavor and a sweetness that compliments the spice nicely and brings out the tartness of the Granny Smith apples (just like a caramel apple).

Cooked in a Bundt pan, the cake forms a nice crust on the outside while remaining soft on the inside—my favorite.

Fall is my favorite time to curl up with a good book, a cozy blanket, and a special treat. This Caramel Apple Cake is the perfect compliment to my reading time. Indulgent, full of apples, and drizzled with caramel, there’s nothing that says “It’s Fall!” like this dessert.

The Lost Apothecary is Sarah Penner’s debut novel. A dual-timeline story split between present day and late 1700s London, it is one of my favorite novels of the year.

The split timeline along with plenty of tension made for a fun and fast read. Despite feeling like it was a quick read, the characters were well-developed and complex. And the plot was well-crafted and satisfying.

In present day, aspiring historian Caroline Parcewell finds herself broken-hearted and on her ten-year anniversary trip alone. When she stumbles upon a rare bottle on the Thames, it propels her on a journey to discover the bottle’s origins and the dark purpose it once held.

In 1790s London, an apothecary who aids troubled women is unexpectedly undermined by her newest patron, a meddling twelve-year-old, and the consequences will echo through their lives and to the present day.
