TWD - Apple Weekend Cake



This week's Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Apple Weekend Cake.  I made it on Melbourne's Labour Day holiday, when the annual Moomba parade is held.

This is a good, solid, honest cake with chunks of apple and rum and vanilla for flavouring.  It is easy to make and even easier to eat, with the apple giving it moisture and texture. It was also a fab way to breathe new life into rather leathery old apples.

I would definitely make this cake again - it is delicious.

To see what everyone else made this week, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

  3. This one was SO good :) It always amazes me to see recipes like this that feel too simple yet that taste so good. Like the apple cake from AMFT, this one will stay in my back pocket - perfect for using up apples on their way out...

  8. "Good, solid, honest cake" is a pretty perfect description of this one. It was so very much itself, if that makes sense. I loved it, too.
