FFwD: Marie-Hélène’s Apple Cake
The final FFwD recipe for the month of October was Marie-Hélène’s Apple Cake, an easy-to-make cake loaded with apple chunks.
I chose four different kinds of apples for this cake: Fuji, Gala, Braeburn, and Granny Smith.
Basically, you whisk together a simple batter of flour, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and melted butter. While the recipe calls for rum, I substituted Amaretto. When the batter is prepared, you fold in the chunks of the apples you selected and pour it into an 8-inch springform pan.
Bake for about an hour, cool,
I know for sure that this cake won't last long. Because it is so easy to make, it's also a great dessert for parties and get-togethers.
Head over to French Fridays with Dorie to see how the other bakers fared. All of the recipes for our inaugural month were delicious and fun to make. Perhaps Dorie would be willing to choose our selections more often!
