FFwD- Marie-Helene's Apple Cake
This weeks recipe was this apple cake which I only actually got to bake today. It is described in the book as "more apple than cake" and as being "rather plain but very appealing in it's simplicity". I used a mix of Braeburn, Royal Gala and Rose apples in mine and instead of rum (which I'm not so keen on), I used Brandy. It is very easy to make and you don't even need a stand mixer to make it. I had a small slice so I could comment on the cake itself. I would have to say it seems to have more of a clafoutis type of texture. It also tastes really lovely and would be great with some lightly whipped cream. I'm going to take it to work tomorrow as I am on a (rare) day shift. You can see how the others went with their cake here. Sorry about the photo quality but I was in a rush to get this posted.
