About to make Teddie's Apple Cake...

But I just discovered that someone has eaten all of my apples. Any substitutes? Should I just omit the apples?

Do you have any pears? Those would be a good substitute

Great idea! Alas, no. The only fresh fruit I have in house are some berries and some grapes. I have some dried fruit (apricots mostly).

You could add some more dried fruit since the recipe already has raisins. If you wanted to do that add a cup of dried fruit coarsely chopped. The cake will probably be ok without the added fruit too

I'll try it. Thanks.
