A few weeks ago I prepared this apple cake.

Yes, another apple cake is true, but this one is not only spiced but also amazing and then it’s by Ottolenghi, taken from his book Simple.
I didn’t have high expectations, I kept telling myself that all this hype around this cake was unjustified and yet I had to change my mind.

Soft, spiced, and the apples that remain crunchy make it incredibly good.

The softness of the cake is undoubtedly due to the presence of sour cream in the dough which gives a perfect consistency, please do not replace it with regular cream, trust me, I opted to prepare it with the Thermomix (I used lactose-free cream and yogurt).

The original recipe requires 3 apples, including 1 granny smith and 2 bramleys; I used 3 golden apples which are more easily available and it turned out just perfect. 🙂
As for the spice mix, a specific mix called Mixed spices is mentioned, which in the UK is sold consisting of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and allspice, but alternatively, you can use a gingerbread spice mix.

I served it for a snack among friends and it was appreciated by everyone, the leftover part (little) I ate for breakfast, because of the apples and sour cream it only lasts a few days.

I only wish you a nice weekend and leave you to the recipe for the Thermomix Spiced Apple Cake.

See you for the next recipe!
