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.

Coffee Kahlua Chiffon Cake ~ 咖啡戚风蛋糕

  It's Chiffon cake again.  I never get tired of baking chiffon cakes and am still looking for new flavours of chiffon cakes.  This is a coffee chiffon with added Kahlua liqueur.  I have shared Coffee chiffon with cocoa layering and Coffee Marble chiffon cake on my blog before and if you are interested feel free to take a peep.  Again as with all chiffon cakes, this Coffee Kahlua chiffon cake doesn't disappoint, it's soft and moist with a tinge of Kahlua liqueur.

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
