FFWD—Marie-Helene’s Apple Cake

French Fridays With Dorie today is Marie-Helene’s Apple Cake on pages 432-433 in the new book, Around My French Table.  This cake is actually more apples than cake.

I made the cake on Sunday along with the TWD All-American, All-Delicious Apple Pie and this delicious Marbled Chocolate-Sweet Potato Cake.  We had family over to enjoy all the desserts.  And that they did.  Some liked the pie the best, some the bundt cake and some liked the apple cake.  That’s a well-rounded spread, I’d say.

My cake didn’t quite look like the others I’ve seen, but I think it was fine.  Cindy liked it so much, she took home what was left (almost half), which I was happy to let her do!  I only took one bite of the cake.  It’s apple-y.   Scott really liked this cake, too.

Get the book, join the group, cook and bake along with us.  It’s fun to try new recipes.  What will November bring?  Wait and see!

I'm totally impressed that you made three desserts in one weekend. You've really been busy, but it looks like your efforts paid off because each of those desserts looked so tasty. That apple cake does look nice and apple-y and the top is so moist and golden. Your family is incredibly lucky to have such a good baker in their midst.

Beautiful.

I didn't make the cake because I still have pie left.

You are quite the baker - I agree! So much energy and spirit - I love it! But this was so easy to make - and I agree - mine was a little soggy? Didn't look like most others, but still wonderful!

Three desserts - lucky family! Glad this one worked so well for you. November is going to be great, I agree.

Mine did not look like the photo either, but it was good...and they ate it all both times I made it, so I am counting it successful. Yours looks great to me...and what's not to love about whipped cream on top of it???
