APPLE AND LEMON CAKE and a quite excellent discovery.

Posted on

This is one amongst Mary Berry’s most recent recipes, appearing in her latest TV collection, the e book that is going with it and in various places on the net, one amongst which you are able to see proper right here.  I was demise to have a pass at making it on the other hand was once so busy with other stuff that I had to put it at the once more burner, so that you can 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 was once hosted through a club member who lives in what is indubitably some of the an important surprising villages inside the house, if now not in all of France, a place referred to as Angles-sur-l’Anglin.  The village is steeped in historic history with an earlier ruined château, prehistoric cave paintings, a water mill through the river, zillions of lovely earlier properties and oodles of enchantment.  However it isn’t spoiled in a touristy method.  If truth be told in summer time at the weekend you in all probability cannot switch for travelers but it surely undoubtedly however 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 plenty of other possible choices in conjunction with, for those folks who had no idea what to make of it, our non-public Attitude on Easter.  Due to this fact I decided on to fill and top my cake with a lemon buttercream as a substitute of Mary’s method which was once to fill with whipped cream with lemon curd swirled by the use of it and a simple dusting of icing sugar on top.  Which may had been additional fashionable on the other hand did not allow for any decoration as in step with the brief.  I sought after a buttercream top to stick the decorations in!



I decorated 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 quite excellent discovery referred to inside the identify of this put up was once the chocolate.



As it grew to become out it tastes utterly like Caramac.  A Caramac bar was once a real maintain after I used to be a bit of bit girl and its unique caramel flavour is to die for.  I’ve by no means noticed it inside the shops for years although to be fair, I’ve by no means been making an attempt – the confectionary aisle of any grocery retailer is out of bounds, being a ways too destructive.  Effectively now I have found out a change which I will be able to get my hands on any day I love (in France) so I’m dead proud of that.



I was now not too glad once I took the cakes out of the oven as they didn’t glance very attractive.  An excellent slather with lemon buttercream stepped forward problems (until I decorated the cake) on the other hand the cake was once in reality somewhat gorgeous. 



It had an exquisite, even crumb and was once excellent and wet, as it was once positive to be with the grated apple in it.  I shall in reality be making this one over again in no time although I believe next time just a filling of lemon curd and a dusting of icing sugar is perhaps enough without the cream, very similar to an apple Victoria sponge, which is what it is in reality.
