Welcome to the 4th day ofSprinkled with Flour.
3 cups chopped unpeeled apples (Braeburn, Gala, or similar) Erika's Extra: I used a mix of Granny Smith and Stayman Winesap)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 tbsp butter, softened
2-3 tablespoons whole milk
1 tbsp pure maple syrup (can use maple extract also)
For the Cake:
In a medium bowl combine the powdered sugar, butter and enough milk to make a spreadable consistency. This was about 2 tablespoons for me. Mix until smooth. Add the tablespoon of maple syrup/maple extract, and stir. Spread over the mostly cooled cake. Let the frosting set, then cut into bars.
