Apple cake



A tasty classic


The apple season has undoubtedly begun. Now that the leaves on the trees change their colour, the ripe apples are ready to be harvested. If we had to pick between all the amazing apple desserts, we would say that a traditional apple cake is one of the most nostalgic desserts in the autumn season.  

There are uncountable ways to make a traditional apple cake, and even more recipes for rasp. Here is our recipe for a classic and delicious apple cake with macaroon rasp that offers a harmonic mix of sour, sweet, crunchy and soft.

You can either present the cake in a beautiful bowl or in an elegant wine glass as we did. This way every delicious layer is done justice.
