This week’s French Fridays with Dorie was hands down the easiest dessert I have made in a long time. Almost too easy, in fact. It’s so easy you could throw it together in about 15 minutes on a weeknight and have a delectable dessert in just over an hour. Danger, danger!
What I really loved about it was the fact that there were more apples than batter. The batter just serves as a means of suspending the tart-but-sweet Cortland apples I used in a battery-bliss….
Yeah, I could have eaten this out of the bowl. Not that – ahem – I would ever do that.
It’s not a high cake because it’s so dense – I admit I was a little worried at the lack of batter.
Until it came out of the oven, beautiful and golden…
And it was perfect served warm with a sprinkle of icing sugar…
OMG – delicious!
And actually, even better the next day, heated gently in the oven in foil or zapped in the microwave at work for 30 seconds if you don’t have access to an oven.
With whipped cream, ice cream or just plain.
