If you're wondering what the "NFFC" stands for, it stands for No Fuss Fudge Cake, which I blogged about early this year. To me, it's the easiest, most versatile, adjustable, nicest tasting cake recipe I've ever come across. I got the recipe from a forum I belonged to a while ago and I have made it into so many different combinations. I've made cupcakes, muffins, bar cakes, ring cakes, sheet cake and even a Swiss Roll once. You can chop and change ingredients to make it into just about anything. In my original post, I had made it into a Black Forest Cherry Cake.
I was actually challenged by a girlfriend of mine, after I mentioned to her that I was craving a Lemon Meringue Cupcake. She suggested the good old NFFC and she'd know as she's made just as many, if not more, different combinations than I have. I thought about the lemon meringue and remembered my husband doesn't like it and I don't think the kids would eat the lemon butter. I also am on the last of my apples that I got from the farmer a few months back. I made up some Spicy Apple & Walnut Muffins the other day and they turned out lovely and moist from the use of the apple puree so I decided to use apple puree again in the NFFC in place of the oil that's in the cake.
Here's the original recipe with my adjustments.
