APPLE AND LEMON CAKE and a somewhat excellent discovery.

Posted on

This is one amongst Mary Berry’s most recent recipes, appearing in her latest TV collection, the book that is going with it and in numerous places on the net, one amongst which you are able to see proper right here.  I was death to have a cross 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 via a club member who lives in what is definitely one of the crucial a very powerful surprising villages inside the space, if no longer 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 via the river, zillions of lovely earlier houses and oodles of attraction.  However it isn’t spoiled in a touristy way.  In reality in summer time at the weekend you perhaps cannot switch for travelers but it surely definitely 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 lot of other possible choices at the side of, 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 way 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 high.  Which may were additional trendy on the other hand did not allow for any decoration as consistent 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 somewhat excellent discovery referred to inside the identify of this post was once the chocolate.



As it became out it tastes utterly like Caramac.  A Caramac bar was once a real handle 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 outlets for years despite the fact that to be honest, I’ve by no means been attempting – the confectionary aisle of any grocery retailer is out of bounds, being some distance too damaging.  Well now I have found out a change which I will get my fingers on any day I love (in France) so I’m useless proud of that.



I was no longer too glad once I took the desserts out of the oven as they didn’t glance very attractive.  An excellent slather with lemon buttercream advanced problems (until I adorned the cake) on the other hand the cake was once truly rather gorgeous. 



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