Cakes with apples are great all year round. They are always “in season”, right? No matter if it’s summer or the deepest winter – I could eat them all the time! The reason for that is not only that apple cakes are always delicious. You can get apples all year round – I think that is an important factor that they are so popular everywhere 24/7 and 365 days a year ;P That’s also why I bake quite often with apples. No matter if it’s a simple Crumb Cake with Apples or a delicious Spiced Apple Bundt Cake like this one here. Serving apple cakes & pies is always a good option ;)
Christmas without baked apples as dessert is hard to imagine – at least here in Germany. They pop up everywhere around Christmas ;) I love the combination of apple and cinnamon and love to use that in other desserts and bakes as well. Something like this Baked Apple Cake (with sour cream), for example. Along with some mulled wine or hot apple cider… so good!
Apple cakes are in season right now. Fall is the time to bake them, right? It’s actually not very surprising – they are laying around everywhere waiting for you to do something with them ;P I got some from the farmer’s market and made this really simple and easy Apple Crumb Cake today. Done in no time and sooooooo good ;)
For many people, fall is primarily the season for everything apple. It makes sense because that’s the time when apples are harvested. Clever storage, however, makes it possible that apples are available all year round. Many apple varieties stay fresh for 9 months, some even for 12 months, if stored correctly. That means delicious apple pies and tarts, like this great Normandy Apple Tart, are available 365 days a year. Yay! ;)
October is almost over. It’s time for a new “Bake Together – The Baking Surprise”! Many of you probably expect something for Halloween today but unfortunately, I do not have anything bloody for you today. Sorry! Just a delicious Apple Pecan & Cranberry Streusel Cake. Nothin’ overly fancy. If you want it to be Halloween-themed you could pour some red fruit sauce on top and stick a few knives into it… but the cake is actually fine as it is here :P
Today is all about feeling good and homey with a help of a classic German cake. A delicious German Apple Streusel Cake my mom baked, her mother, my grandmother’s mother and her mother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandfather…. etc. I guess you know where I am going. They all knew how to make a good apple cake, so it certainly can’t hurt to have such a delicious treat in your own repertoire, right?! ;)
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
