A very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dear friend BARB!!!!
Every year at this time I make apple cakes, many of them. It is our traditional dessert during Rosh Hashanah** and just simply delicious for any occasion. This year I tried a new recipe from Robin Asbell’s latest book on Whole Grains. It gets its richness from pumpkin puree, a layer of sauteed apples and then the whole thing is topped with spiced struesel. This cake is so amazing, I had to bake two. The first one my family ate before I could photograph it for this post, so I made another, it’s gone too. Because the cake is made with whole wheat flour, apples and pumpkin I feel great about satisfying my boys’ requests to eat it for breakfast, a snack and dessert.
