Welcome the the last recipe of October for the new French Fridays cooking group. If you haven't got Dorie Greenspan's new cookbook, Around My French Table, I hope it's on your holiday wish list. So far, each recipe has been straightforward, foolproof really, and delicious.
The first dessert we tackle is a lovely French apple cake. As you'll see from my slice, there's more apple than batter. But it holds together and is moist and tasty.
The recipe calls for 3 tablespoons of dark rum. I used two and, coupled with Ginger Gold apples, the cake had a good balance of sweet and spicy.
This recipe can be found at Epicurious, but it's not too late to buy the book and cook along with us on Fridays!
