It all started with an orange and 4 small apples. I was meaning to make Julia Child's Tarte Tatin, but
so I decided to mix and merge and see what will come out of it.
Baking has never been my strongest suit, I bake mainly simple sponges, brownies and cheesecakes and variations on the same theme. I love creamy puddings, though - Arabian and Indian desserts with lots of honey, pistachios and rose water. *love*
This cake is basically an upside down basic orange sponge packed with vanilla, cinnamon and orange zest.
Type of cuisine: Fusion/Italian, French
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Baking time: 25-30 minutes/ 150'C
The orange juice made the cake sooo moist, while the butter made the apples soft and creamy. It was truly delicious. I only had a tiny slice, the rest was shared among my husband, a friend visiting, my parents, and my grandfather.
I think baking is about sharing precious moments like this. Loving people and making them happy. Seeing them smile and letting them know how special they are to us.
