I made this cake. It's called Drowning Apples which is very appropriate because the apples sink in to the cake batter and are almost competely engulfed with just their tops poking out, all prettily sliced and calling your name to "eat me, now!" It was easy peasy to make and a nice idea to fancy up a plain cake. Initially I was a bit disapointed when I pulled it out of the oven and saw that the apples had remained closed. But after cooling for a bit, they fanned out and did what they were supposed to. Made it taste even better! Shame there were no guests to share it with, just me and the Monsieur. Although Little Bean tried to rip some out of my hand. He moves at light speed now when he sees something he wants. Sooo fast! I just know our cakes, cookies and food in general will be divided by three of us soon. He is so ready to eat a steak!
