French Fridays with Dorie recipe a shot. Dorie herself picked it out as one for us to try.
The ingredients were all very simple which I liked. I already had everything on hand, except the rum. Living in Oregon I had to go to an actual liquor store to get the rum. I only wanted a little bottle and all he had was a spiced rum in that size so my rum had some spice to it.
I undercooked the cake just slightly, but it was still quite good. I even had a second piece. The rum was really the key ingredient. I don't always like alcohol in baked goods, but I thought it went great with the apples. I did a combination of apples in the cake, but preferred the tarter apples. All in all, a simple delicious cake.
