French Apple Cake

In my house, apples are a staple fruit year-round. Of course, they are not always eaten when they should be and, throughout the year, I end up having to try out all kinds of apple recipes so that none are put to waste. French Apple Cake.3

And this recipe is definitely a way to put apples to good use! It is light and sweet, while also being loaded with layers and layers of thinly cut apples. French Apple Cake.5

It has a soft crunch on the outer layer, similar to that of a bakery-style muffin, and is soft on the inside. A little bit of rum and vanilla also perfectly complement the apples for amazing flavor. French Apple Cake.6 French Apple Cake.1 French Apple Cake.4 French Apple Cake.2
