FFwD: Marie Helene’s Apple Cake

I know, I know… I’m late.

To be fair I did warn you that I’d be playing catch up!! So here is my catch up post for French Fridays with Dorie. If you haven’t gotten Dorie’s new book, you really should! It’s chock full of wonderful Fancy-French recipes that are easy to follow and taaasty!

Moving right along, this cake is SO MOIST! Dare I say, too moist for my tastes. It has great flavor but I think I may have left my apple chunks a bit too, well… chunky. I also halved the recipe and baked in a mini bundt pan rather than a springform like Dorie says to. What can I say? I’m a bit of a rebel these days.

Regardless of the moist issue, the flavor was PHENOM!! Spicey and appley and tender and delicious. It really is worth trying.

You can find the recipe in her new book (or here on Epicurious).

In November there are 4 recipes that we can choose to make in any order that suits each individual person. We’ll see what I come up with 😉
