The rest of the Dorista's made a wonderful apple rice pudding that you really should check out. My family and myself included are not big fans of rice pudding, even rice pudding covered in apples and carmel, so instead I made a French Friday recipe that was baked before I joined the group.
This apple cake is tremedous. I love apples, but unlike the rest of my family I find pies to be too sweet. Too much fruit,.. even smothered with ice cream or whipped cream. A few bites and I'm done.
This cake... was very different. Not overly sweet, the butter flavor balanced the apples well and the splash of dark rum gave it a depth of flavor that made it extra special.
The recipe is simple enough that I was actually going to make it myself, but my baker daughter was bored so she took on the task.
A must recipe to make this apple season:
