I actually made this recipe from Dorie’s book and it is fantastic! :-). But the main reason is that I live here full-time and deal with not just sampling my way through the lovely pastry shops and meeting chocolatiers, but also spend a fair amount of time wresting with perplexing bureaucracy and other idioms of life in the City of Fight Light. I love the simplicity and it looks absolutely delightful. It was simple to make and impressed my dinner guests even though it was my first attempt at making Apple cake. Were your apples still a bit “al dente”? A cake yummy enough for Saturday night but easy enough for a Monday! Your stories of French quirks and attitudes are the best! Damn. I like to add some grated lemon peel, the combination of rum, lemon and vanilla is a sure winner. Reduce the mixer speed to low and stir in the apple butter – don’t worry if it curdles the batter. I hope you know how many folks are out here enjoying your wonderful insights, talents and sense of humor. Luckily I’ll be visiting Paris again next month and then back again in January. He was having a nice chat with his co-workers but was kind enough to take a moment to tell me “Non”, they didn’t carry it, and went back to his conversation. Grrr lol. Thanks! Just tasted mine, came out perfectly! This looks like such a delicious recipe that I absolutely must try it. I can’t wait to try this apple cake recipe!! I never did get why the French like to sweeten their dairy so anyway? Whisk with a hand-whisk until eggs are light and frothy. It’s super easy (as long as you don’t mind chopping apples). Love that it uses minimal amounts of ingredients and I don’t have to drag out the mixer. This looks beyond amazing! I like being nice, so I guess people will just have to think I’m not too bright. And I completely agree with you about the rum. So delicious and super easy! Invert again so the cake is top-side up, and dust with confectioner's sugar before serving. Thank you! It was subtle and lovely! Thank you for the perfect inspiration at the perfect time. melted, and cooled to room temperature, plus extra for greasing pan. i miss the french kind. *wink*, Great read today & this cake will be on our Thanksgiving menu (we are giving thanks for living in Paris). Stir in the remaining flour mixture, then the rest of the butter. Thank you! AJ: I know, I was going to try it without and when I realized it, I understood how important it was. It was wonderful. Having lived in France as a student I so remember those bizarre situations. Thanks David! I wonder…if you dressed permanently in a Bragard chef jacket,wouldn’t people be kinder? Would. It is very easy and quick. Those people are evil. BarbF: That was a measure to decrease spam comments, since I didn’t think that readers were all that interested in increasing their bust size, online casinos, or pills guaranteed to make men “poke her eye out” with our you-know-whats. The cake is beautifully soft, tender, brimming with fruit, and so so so moist. A new favorite! To make the icing: The cake is fine served with just a dusting of confectioners’ sugar, but it’s even nicer with a simple confectioners’ sugar icing. Like so many others, I fell in love with this recipe at first sight, then again at first taste. That cake looks positively deeelicious (& that fact that it’s simple makes it all the more appealing)!

You also can’t consolidate your purchases from other floors. I love simple french recipes. A salesman assured me that the website was wrong and that they definitely did not even carry the item in question. And since we are talking about fabric stores, I was recently at Marche Saint Pierre trying to buy some fabric (not étamine) and it was definitely an interesting experience. thanks for the recipe and the fun story! Hope you like! So funny–I started reading Dorie’s book just this afternoon, but I’m only to page 237 and haven’t yet made it to the desserts. Oh and customer service these days in America? I have been looking for a tried and true recipe. http://bit.ly/e4APY6. witloof: I always say, “In America, people say they want to help you, but they really don’t.” (It’s like when you get those people on the phone that are trying to help you but they don’t know what they’re talking about. I love apple cakes, and this one is getting a try for Thanksgiving. Turn the batter into the pan, level the top of the batter and slide the pan into the oven. I made this last Friday evening, and it was tasty. This has to be one of the easiest cakes to put together – I’ll make this again and again. And trust. And alcohol, to go with the butter . The Food Hound: It’s funny how in one instant, you can have an experience where people here are so helpful and wonderful, and charming, and in the next, you get astonished by how brusque someone can be. Also I’ll be adding Dories’ books to my holiday reading list. C’est une recette très proche du fondant aux poires français, à la différence que nous ajoutons d’abord une couche de caramel à sec dans le fond du moule avant de déposer les poires puis la préparation dessus. I want to taste those decadent sticky carmelized edges of cake in that last photo…. They loved it and requested more! ours is a very anemic looking cousin. I didn’t think you were allowed to bring the fabric bolt to the cashier and get it cut there. It looks so good! A true french (and my own family) favorite. Bobbie: I didn’t know you could get Boskoop apples in the states. Okay, I don’t even know what to say other than: This cake is awesome. Plus, it’ll reinforce the apple nicely. It seems too buttery. Thank you – and Dorie – again! I love your new blog look and can’t wait to pin this dessert for later. Fun post – my experience in 90% hit and 10% miss with customer service in Europe and I always use my awful French and 90% of the time it elicits smiles (and an English answer). ;-). In a larger mixing bowl add eggs. I’ve had my share of experiences trying to extract recipes out of cooks here and often they just say, “Just tell readers to add however much flour it takes until it forms the right batter.” And I know how much you’d all love that…. It comes with sweet wishes for all that is merry and joyous, good and delicious too. Fortunately painted on the walls of the fabric store, in very large block letters, were the words “Pas d’échantillons!” (“No samples!”) which I pointed out to him—and we both had a good laugh. Keep adding the juice, a little at a time, until you have an icing that falls easily from the tip of a spoon. After I raised an eyebrow and asked a few more times just be sure, he and all the others in the group shook their heads, confirming with absolute certainty that they definitely did not have that in stock. I am a big fan of Dorie’s baking and can’t wait to read this latest book of hers. I will be making this cake this week to serve to my friend from Alsace! What a lovely, simple recipes this is – one that is sure to find a spot on my table. Here’s the recipe. This recipe just might be replacing my favorite French Apple Cake recipe. Now you’ve gone and presented this cake and I feel like I might cheat on Clotilde and try this one instead! So you can really feel *kind of* healthy eating this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner…? thanks. Thanks for your funny, informative and addictive blog! And there was a pretty interesting poll I just read that revealed that 41% of the people in France think that if you’re nice, you come off as an imbecile. Thank you for sharing, besides we needed an excuse to stock up on rum :-). Just curious.. @2019 - All Right Reserved. Made this three times (variations included cranberries, maple sugar, and nuts). Such a simple idea, and a great touch. I cannot find créme fraiche in Italy, would mascarpone be an acceptable relacement? Oh! It’s a great breakfast cake to enjoy with a cup of tea. January 22, 2016 16 comments. I never would’ve thought broken eggshells and apple peels could look so beautiful. i tried the apple cake – it turned out very well, except that we find the base of the cake rather soft and a little moist. I sat there for a few moments scratching my head to remember, then not sure of what to say, I finally replied, “I’ve not sat around Dorie’s French table.” Which was true. The girls and I are giving this one a shot tomorrow for Lani’s birthday. Thanks for bringing Paris to me since I can’t go to her! Please don’t tell her if I do! Overall apple flavor is so pure and delicious (yep, hold that cinnamon!!) Thanks goodness, there is that Big A on the web, where I was able to mail order a French mold from the States. ;), I remember reading in Julia Child’s “From Julia Child’s Kitchen” that she had to buy cotton gauze at the apothecary because the French grocery stores did not sell cheesecloth. Thanks for sharing … and hope you find your way to Dorie’s table soon. The thought of you and Dorie strolling through Paris together makes me happy (and jealous). beautiful & very generous post… I used honeycrisp apples. My boyfriend (notoriously picky about treats) loves it, and I love it – it reminds me of the summer I lived in Paris and wandered the streets of the 5eme, eating my way through the city. It was nice to have a lovely desert that did not require getting out the mixer! Ah, the elusive étamine. Pinned and making very soon! mm what a lovely cake! What a lovely and simple recipe. You are too funny. I love this recipe! But it’s like most places in France; the service isn’t always included—sometimes you kind of have to work to get it. Chez loulou: Next time you’re in Paris, you should pick some up! “Hello Darlings! I. Goodness, that creme fraiche looks like pudding, how rich. Your cake looks so moist and delicious and would love biting into the little pieces of apple. Aren’t apples the best? It was also great at room temperature next day with coffee. The simplest recipes always turn out best and this is no exception. (Sorry). The cake is easily mixed up in a bowl, scraped into a cake pan, and in less than the time it takes to run to the pâtisserie for a store-bought cake—or a seemingly simple length of fabric—you can have an authentic French cake right from your own oven. But I will be able to live with myself. I used tart apples which seemed perfect against the sweet batter. So if you’re like me and can only commit to dieting for approximately 1 week (the 1st week of January) and at this point have decided all bets are off in the resolution department, let this be the cake for you.You won’t regret it, I promise. Bake the cake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. I hope to take some great photos like you do on this blog. It’s been almost 2 years now that I’ve been to Paris and I hope to get my fill of it until the next time and I hope it wont be 2 years until I go back! Now i know where to go here. Now I can simply pick some apples. it’s such a vital word in the French Daily Life!!!! I really look forward to trying this one with some delicious apples from our Farmers’ Market here in NJ. HAHA! And of course I’ll be baking. So ugly, it’d never sell in the US, but delicious (with a really cool name, too!). I was disappointed, since I had been picturing this cake dripping with apple syrup, so I tweeked it a bit. I love the cakes one finds in France and Germany and this one helps me not miss them ! Come to Nantes. Jump to Recipe Print Recipe. It’s not that they don’t work, it’s just that often they’ll just cook things au pif, or “by the nose”, adding a little of that and not measuring. I asked him where it would be if they did have it. Still turned out well! Dorie was kind enough to thank me for sharing her table with her in the book.
