French Fridays with Dorie: Marie-Hélène’s Apple Cake

If there's one apple cake you must make this fall, it's Marie-Hélène’s Apple Cake as featured in Dorie Greenspan's Around My French Table.

This "cake" is packed (and I mean packed) with apples—the perfect way to use up all those local apples from the market or the orchard.

There's definitely more fruit to cake ratio here, making for a dense and supper moist cake. Well, it's more like a baked apple custard. And this cake really does taste better the next day!

I used Ontario Cortland apples, a great baking apple that holds its shape well. I had a bottle of brandy lying around, so I substituted that for the rum (a splash of Calvados would also be lovely!).

Be sure to drop by French Fridays with Dorie to see everyone else's apple cakes. You too can join us every Fridays. Just pick up your copy of Around My French Cooking, sign up for FFWD, and start cooking!
