French Fridays: Marie-Helene's Apple Cake
This is such a heart warming cake. I enjoyed making it, eating the batter, watching with anticipation as it baked and finally eating it. My son could not wait to try it and started saying how it smelled so good as early as when the butter was melting. That boy knows how to get what he wants.
This recipe was very easy. It had a few ingredients.
I used the 9 inch springform pan, so I made 1 1/2 recipe. It called for 4 large apples, I bought 6...2 Cameo, 1 Fuji, 2 Gala, and 1 Jonagold. The Jonagold was rather large. Almost a pound and here is the proof...
Since that apple was so large, I only used 5. That was a smart decision!
The batter tasted amazing, but I knew that I couldn't eat it all. I had to save some for the cake.
Making 1 1/2 times the recipe increased the baking time for me. It ended up staying in the oven for 85 minutes. That was a really long wait, but well worth it.
