FFwD: Marie-Helene’s Apple Cake
Dear Baking Groups,
Please send a wheelbarrow for my family to cart me around in.
- the Queen of Chub
OK, it's not quite that bad, but after a week of apple pie, donuts, and cinnamon rolls haunting my counters, I felt it was time to cut back.
I cut this week's French Fridays with Dorie recipe, Marie-Helene’s Apple Cake, down to 1/4 recipe and baked it in a 5" pan. Good thing, since this cake was definitely chow-down worthy.
I cut back on the corresponding amount of apples because it just seemed there were too many apples for the small amount of cake batter.
I thought it was very tasty and delish. Interestingly, I thought it was very similar to the Fold Over Pear Torte in both taste and appearance that we made a few weeks ago for TWD.
If you'd like to see the recipe... please go check out the FFWD site (this month only, recipes are supplied), or get a copy of Dorie's new book "Around my French Table".
