Tasty Apple Cake

Production: 8 – Serving
Preparation: 20 Minutes
Cooking: 70 Minutes

As the title indicates, it is a cake made of apple that we offer here. The paste is only used to hold together the apple slices that make up the heart of this delicious dessert.

As it is often the case with apples, choice of the apple variety can have a big impact on the cooking time and the final texture of the cake. It is therefore preferable to choose apples that tend to remain relatively firm during cooking, otherwise the heart of the cake will turn to be too “soft” and more like a pudding when cut into portions.

The cooking time is approximate. Before considering that the cake is done it is imperative to check the center with a knife. The timer, in this case is only an indicator.
The type of mold used is also decisive. It is best to choose a tall springform pan.

    It is, by far, the most “apples rich” cake that I have ever bake. It is also one of the best tasting.
