This week on WBUR, Here & Now's resident chef Kathy Gunst chose a recipe from Annemarie Ahearn's Full Moon Suppers for her roundup of apple varieties and recipes to make with them. If you're going apple picking this fall, here's a perfect way to turn your haul into a delicious cake!
In the segment, Gunst says: “This extremely simple and satisfying apple cake is adapted from "Full Moon Suppers at Salt Water Farm," by Annemarie Ahearn (Roost Books). Annemarie's recipe is for peach cake, and after a summer of making this cake with peaches, I decided to try sauteing apples with fall spices and a touch of maple syrup and it worked beautifully. I also added buttermilk instead of using all heavy cream for a lighter touch. Serve with whipped cream if you like.”
