Italian Apple Cake



I was inspired by Ann to attempt this Italian Apple Cake as I was hooked when I saw the layers of apple in her cupcakes.  I didn't make cupcakes though but pour all the batter into a springform pan to make a whole cake instead.  I waited eagerly for the cake to cool before cutting it up to see how the apples will appear and was delighted with the result.  Thanks for sharing this recipe, Ann.








 







This is a cake for all occasions and serves well with a pot of plain hot  tea.  To make this whole cake, I made 1.1/2 of  the following recipe.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.
