APPLE AND LEMON CAKE and a rather excellent discovery.

Posted on

This is one amongst Mary Berry’s most recent recipes, appearing in her latest TV collection, the guide that is going with it and in plenty of places on the internet, one amongst which you are able to see proper right here.  I was demise to have a cross at making it on the other hand used to be so busy with other stuff that I had to put it at the once more burner, with the intention to communicate, until I had the danger.


That opportunity arose with ultimate month’s cake club meeting (which you are able to be informed all about proper right here).  It used to be hosted via a club member who lives in what is for sure probably the most the most important shocking villages throughout the house, if no longer in all of France, a place referred to as Angles-sur-l’Anglin.  The village is steeped in ancient history with an earlier ruined château, prehistoric cave paintings, a water mill via the river, zillions of gorgeous earlier properties and oodles of attraction.  However it isn’t spoiled in a touristy means.  In fact in summer time at the weekend you perhaps can not switch for travelers but it surely without a doubt nevertheless remains a in large part unspoilt village.


The host’s theme revolved around the village, suggesting a château gateau, a cake for a princess and a number of other alternatives along side, for those folks who had no idea what to make of it, our private Perspective on Easter.  Due to this fact I decided on to fill and high my cake with a lemon buttercream as a substitute of Mary’s means which used to be to fill with whipped cream with lemon curd swirled by means of it and a simple dusting of icing sugar on high.  Which may were additional trendy on the other hand did not allow for any decoration as in keeping with the brief.  I sought after a buttercream high to stick the decorations in!



I adorned my cake with triangles of a thin chocolate bar and mini Easter eggs that were not chocolate on the other hand fruity, thereby complying with the “Angles on Easter” theme.  The rather excellent discovery referred to throughout the name of this put up used to be the chocolate.



As it became out it tastes totally like Caramac.  A Caramac bar used to be a real handle after I used to be somewhat bit girl and its unique caramel flavour is to die for.  I’ve by no means observed it throughout the outlets for years regardless that to be fair, I’ve by no means been attempting – the confectionary aisle of any grocery retailer is out of bounds, being some distance too destructive.  Properly now I have found out a exchange which I will be able to get my fingers on any day I love (in France) so I’m dead pleased with that.



I was no longer too satisfied once I took the truffles out of the oven as they didn’t glance very attractive.  An excellent slather with lemon buttercream stepped forward problems (until I adorned the cake) on the other hand the cake used to be in reality moderately stunning. 



It had a phenomenal, even crumb and used to be excellent and wet, as it used to be positive to be with the grated apple in it.  I shall if truth be told be making this one another time in no time regardless that I believe next time just a filling of lemon curd and a dusting of icing sugar could be enough without the cream, very similar to an apple Victoria sponge, which is what it is if truth be told.
