Then you won’t want to miss this delicious fruit dessert recipe for Marie-Helene’s 4 Apple Cake from the folks at Two Peas and Their Pod.
Sure, everyone does apple pie, but this is an apple cake inspired by the rich flavors of the French countryside.
Even better, this beautiful little apple cake with a hint of rum is a true apple lover’s dream.
You use 4 different kinds of apples to make it (the folks at Two Peas and Their Pod used Honeycrisp, Gala, Fuji, and Granny Smith, but the choice is up to you), so it’s all too easy to showcase your favorite apple varieties from your area (or from your childhood).
This wonderful recipe originally appeared in Dorie Greenspan’s new cookbook, Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours.
