TWD Russian Grandmother’s Apple Pie Cake

Posted by BAKE-EN at 10:27 PM

This week and next; my posts will be on the shorter side. It's restaurant week here in Boston, and that means I'll be working many extra hours. The upside of restaurant week is that Joe and I will be eating dinner at Excelsior on Friday night. I can't wait for that!

This apple pie cake was fantastic. I found the dough fun to work with and quite tasty. I loved the way the dough hugged the apples as it was baking, revealing the fruit within. I baked this cake with Cortland apples, and I found the flavor of them worked well with the dough.

Luckily, there isn't much to say about this cake/pie other than I will make it again!

Cortland apples, huh? Thanks for the tip - the Fuji/Gala/Granny Smith combo didn't really work.

Thanks!

How excellent that you enjoyed the pie cake so much. It is good to hear which apples people, so many different ones. Great job!
