Polenta Apple Cake

It might not be very pretty but it sure was good and it was a good way to start off the week. The whole cake gone in less than a day, it was that good! It is a sweet cornbread with apples and raisins added, experiment resulting from trying a basic cornbread recipe and sometimes adding mashed bananas and walnuts, very good as well, and this time I tried apples. Great for breakfast or a snack. Not too moist, not too dry, just perfect. Try it and let me know if you like it as well.
