Apple Cake, also known as an Apple Kuchen, simple vanilla cake, topped with sliced apples and a cinnamon sugar mixture. Makes a great presentation for any occasion!
I love apples. It’s my favorite fruit. Always has been. I can and will eat them anytime, fixed any way. I love Apple pie, still warm from the oven. But when I make an apple pie it looks like a five year old made it. It’s delicious. The filling, the crust (I sprinkle a little sugar on top of my crust and it’s to die for!) It’s just not pretty.
It’s my own fault. I have no patience. I’ll go around the edge and crimp it one time and I’m done. So I don’t make pies for the Holidays.
I go for cookies and bars and sheet cakes. All so much easier to eat in front of the television while watching football or your favorite Christmas movie. And while we’re talking about movies, I have to confess, we’ve been watching Christmas movies for 3 weeks now. The Santa Clause Trilogy, The Grinch (both the animated original and the Jim Carey version,) Home Alone, The Polar Express.
Elegant doesn’t have to mean difficult. If you have a good recipe and good ingredients, you can impress without a lot of work. Fresh, crisp apples and White Lily Flour. White Lily not only makes the fluffiest biscuits but it’s amazing for cakes. I’m not a sifter but my cakes always turn out perfect.
