Johnny Appleseed’s Warm Apple Cakes Disney Park Recipe
You can find these delicious treats at The Diamond Horseshoe, Magic Kingdom
These individual little cakes are as adorable as they are scrumptious. Johnny Appleseed is an American legend who planted apple trees everywhere he went and ended up fruiting much of America with delicious apples.
Johnny was actually a real person named John Chapman and really did plant an abundance of apple trees! Enjoy this dessert as you wonder whether Johnny himself planted the tree that these apples came from.
