Apple Gingerbread Cake With Cream
Bon Appetit Magazine, Oct 2016, p.100
4.5 stars

This recipe is not for a beginner baker, and it's not a quick recipe.  Not hard, just a lot of steps and takes some time!

It's a really nice fall/winter dessert that's a bit on the sweet side primarily because of the caramel.  With vanilla bean ice cream on the side, it's perfect for a apple-gingerbread lover.

Ingredients:  unsalted butter, light brown sugar, lady apples, flour, baking powder, kosher salt, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, dark molasses, pure maple syrup, eggs, fresh ginger, baking soda, heavy cream

  • Cooked the apples all at once in a large skillet vs. in 2 batches.
  • Sliced the apples differently than how Bon Appetit sliced them.
  • Baked for 47 min.
  • Next time, will cut the salt to just 1 tsp.  Each bite is a little on the salty side.
