Marie-Hélène’s Apple Cake FFwD

Here is another delicious recipe  from Dorie Greenspan's  around my french table.  There were photos of this most delicious cake trapped on my camera.  Luckily, in my Saturday morning cleaning I found the cable, of course that means that I missed the posting for French Fridays with Dorie.

This recipe is a keeper.  A quick, delicious fall cake.  A mixture of ingredients that we all have at home.  However, the recipe called for rum.  There is no rum in my house, I have not recovered from my college experience with rum.  I am not buying rum.  So, I added a little cinnamon.

For years, the teenagers in my house had braces.  This handy apple cutter let them continue to eat apples to their belly's content.

It was a quick batter that resulted in a cake that we will make time and time again.  I heard a request for it to grace the Thanksgiving table...


  1. Hmmm, cinnamon, I will have to try that!

  2. Anne Marie, could you please send me your name and mailing address. You won one of my giveaway prizes!

    The apple cake looks delish!

  3. I agree with Monica...hmmm cinnamon. I'm going to make this again sometime this winter and cut down on the rum a bit and add some cinnamon. Your cake looks great!

  4. Ahh , i love that cutter ,mus ask mommy to get me one and use my braces as an excuse:-)
    I added cinnamon in a portion too and it was gorgeous!!
    ur pics are so lovely!

  5. I need one of those apple cutters! That would so help with the kids! It was a delicious cake wasn't it!

  6. I made this twice trying to get my batter to look like yours, but it just kept turning out mostly was all very good that way, but I wanted mine to look like yours!! I guess maybe I need to use smaller apples.
