Preparation: 20 Minutes
Cooking: 20 Minutes

Fall the beautiful season of plenty. Nature gives us two of its tastiest fruit: apple and cranberry. And to make the event even more enjoyable there are two products that combine to perfection.

In our recipe, the soft texture of cooked apple blends beautifully with the acidity of the cranberries and the crunch of pistachio nuts on top of a well flavored cake.

Feel free to experiment with different type of apples, honey and nut to discover the unique combination that will be yours.
