A Simple Delight

Living in a village with so many apple orchards a stones throw away, our autumn is filled with many dishes made with apples, salads, breads and desserts. If it makes sense an apple finds its way into every dish.
I have made this cake several times and it’s my absolute favorite it’s fast, easy and so good. I found this recipe in one of my cookbooks, Recipes from the French Wine Harvest by Rosi Hanson.
Noelle Lafarge’s Apple Cake
For 8 people
6 oz sugar (I use vanilla sugar)
3 eggs
8 oz plain flour
3 t baking powder
1 T. melted butter
1 lb. cooking apples (I use Northern Spy)
Preheat oven to 425.
Beat sugar and eggs together until pale. Sift flour and baking powder together, then stir into egg mixture. Stir in melted butter.
Peel and core apples. Cut into chucks. Incorporate them into the batter. Turn into a parchment lined and greased 8 in spring form pan and bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Serve warm with crème fraiche.
