So you might be thinking this is a little more fall like and it is similar to the apple quince crumb cake but to me it’s more of a grab and go slice. I’d eat this after a workout. And it is a great little cake for January when you want to feel like you are eating on the lighter side. When you still want something sweet but not like cranberry cheesecake or chocolate mousse sweet. This easy to make and easy to eat cake can double as a breakfast cake or afternoon tea cake. OR if you want, slap a little cinnamon cream cheese or buttercream frosting on it, or spiced caramel sauce or how about Fat Toad’s cinnamon caramel sauce… and call it dessert. You can find this amazing goat caramel sauce at Chez Chloe but to buy now visit Fat Toad :)
I had three boxes of apples sitting on my porch staring me down for a couple months… literally screaming to me everyday. “We are rotting before your eyes Wendy… HELP.” When little teeth/scratchy marks started appearing, I finally responded. Attracting varmint to the front porch is not high on my list despite the fact we do live in a country setting and even our rats eat organic.
This cake started with the making of applesauce. Do I have an actual recipe? No. I filled this enormous pot…
with peeled and cored apples and added about 3 cups of water, juice of 2 fresh lemons and about a cup of brown sugar and a few shakes of cinnamon and ended up with this. Ollie devours it. What a great snack to pull off the shelf.
The spiced applesauce cake is a recipe from Gourmet Magazine, September 2009. Here you will find the recipe which also includes a cream cheese frosting. Honestly, it didn’t interest me at this time. I went for a dusting of powdered sugar.
The cake making went like this…
with my new favorite vanilla from Beanilla also at Chez Chloe…
Funny enough with the languages… the German pours out when I talk to people here in the USA. I think because it’s an unexpected surprise. So hearing anything people are impressed. When I’m in Germany, I’m a shy little mouse listening, observing, and speak when spoken to. I feel the pressure. And I always come home with every intention to study Rosetta Stone!
Viel Spaß! xx
