I really enjoy Molly Wizenberg’s blog Orangette. I think I’ve mentioned before she could make braised rocks with a side of gravel sound delicious and something I would like to make. Luckily, her recipes are more edible than rocks. When my Bon Appétit comes in the mail, I always turn first to her column The Cooking Life to read her story and recipe.
The Apple Tart Cake Molly featured on her blog was perfect for my friend’s birthday last week. I can see why Molly had a hard time describing the dessert. She couldn't decide whether it was cake or a tart. It seemed more like a tart than a cake to me. The crust was cookie like in its texture, and the apples were soft and sweet on top of the crust.
The tart was easy enough to pull together on a weeknight, but the result was like a weekend dessert. And, everyone at work raved about it. My husband and kids were disappointed they didn’t get a chance to have any, so I will have to make the tart again. Please…like it’s going to be a hardship to make this lovely tart again! I can’t wait.
