Lately, it feels as if I’ve had hardly any time to cook. So this past weekend, I decided to invite over some friends and try three new recipes for one dinner. The menu was chicken Saltimbocca, baked potatoes (but not your typical baked potatoes – I’ll explain that in a future blog post), salad and apple fritter cake.
I got the recipes for the potatoes and the cake from Pinterest. As delicious as everything was (if I do say so myself), the cake was the real winner of the evening. But as my sister said, how could anything called “apple fritter cake” be bad?
This cake starts with a layer of thick batter, which is topped with apple filling and sprinkled with a combination of brown sugar and cinnamon. Next comes another layer of the batter and another sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon. When the cake comes out of the oven, you immediately pour a glaze over it.
The only thing I’d change if I make this cake again is that I’d poke a bunch of holes in it with a chopstick before pouring over the glaze. If you make this cake, choose a flavorful apple such as a Granny Smith. And don’t be alarmed if it’s hard to spread the second layer of batter over the cake – just use a flexible rubber spatula and do the best you can. It’ll turn out just fine.
I have mixed feelings about the fact that this cake is almost gone. That means it won’t be around to tempt me anymore, but it also means I ate too much of it already!
