Yay, finally some cake. Loosing weight and eating cake is kind of hard, so we are always looking for a opportunity to bake a cake as a present. It was one of my colleagues’ birthday at work, so I thought we should bake something nice. Lars had the great idea to try a rose-tarte once and since we had apples en masse at home, we made some apple sauce and added it to the tarte.
Shortcrust pastry hasn’t been our favorite dough so far. But this year we finally got to know a few tricks that make everything easier. Use icing sugar instead of usual sugar. And don’t use the dough if it is still too cold. SO actually it is not very hard, you just have to know how to do it. The cake looks super extravagant even though it is not that much work. But it is super tasty due to apple sauce and pudding. We just bought a tarte mould. You can just take the bottom and take the rim off. That is really nice because like that you don’t destroy the cake 🙂
It really looks good, doesn’t it? And we think it is a perfect gift because it looks good and tastes even better. You don’t have to use the apple sauce, we just thought it would be very nice 🙂
