French Apple Cake // Favorite Things

French Apple Cake

French Apple Cake. I didn’t realize how delicious these 3 words could be before last weekend. If you need a dessert for a party or if you just want to make something delicious and beautiful, do yourself a favor and make this cake. My husband might have already made two this year.  Very helpful for New Years resolutions regarding joy. Less helpful for any resolutions regarding waistlines.

Description: “a dessert with a custardy, apple-rich base beneath a light, cakelike topping.”

Recipe from: America’s Test Kitchen

Note: We made it without the brandy, and it was delicious. I’m assuming it would be delicious with, as well.

Happy eating!

    Unfortunately you can’t view the recipe unless you are a member. Looks delish – too bad America’s test kitchen is so stingy with their recipes.
