Normandy = Apples = Baking = Happy Girl!
What to do with so many apples literally falling on your doorstep on a rainy day in Normandy? You bake a Normandy Apple Cake, that's what you do!
Have you ever made a cake where you have no idea if you're using plain flour/self raising flour/caster sugar, etc. Or no measuring utensils??
I half expected this cake to go straight in the bin....but alas, it was delicious. In fact, if I might be so bold, I thought it was better than the original one I made
Maybe it was the few Normandy raindrops that fell into the batter as I was mixing it by hand.
Maybe my total love of this section of France came through.
Maybe a little too caramelised (ok, burnt) on top, but oh so delicious just the same. Again, no cream necessary. Only a pot of tea required.
