French Fridays With Dorie: Marie-Helene's Apple Cake

This is my first post with French Fridays With Dorie. I was tempted to join Tuesdays With Dorie, but considering I am not much of a baker really I decided against it. This however, is right up my alley. Once a week I cook something from this book, post it, and voila, I am transported to Paris via my crappy kitchen.

This week's recipe was, for lack of a better word, amazing. The cake sounds so simple, yet the combination of the ingredients turn it into something magical. It is easy, delicious, and did I mention delicious? I will be making this again and again, which is high praise considering I rarely say that about baked goods. If you don't like cooked apples, this is not for you, but you really are losing out....and you are also insane.

 I served mine with caramel ice cream, next time I think I will just use whipped cream.

 I love that it came out looking like the picture in the book.
