Apples cake

by | May 16, 2016 | Cakes & Cookies, Pastry | 0 comments

An apple cake is not the perfect Fall dessert only…… can be prepared along all the year.
Each home baker has a secret recipe for the “best” apple cake…..
This cake is the best apple cake I can remember.
Super soft, thanks to the dough: infact the recipe calls for pastry choux recipe……but the proportions are different.
I suggest you to try it: served plain, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of softly whipped cream.
