The best thing about using apple in any dessert is that it appeals to everybody. It has a soft texture, pleasing aroma and mild taste, which everybody will enjoy.

The Apple Cake is one such creation that focuses on apples. Slices of apple are arranged like a beautiful rose, atop a base of plain flour dough, flavoured gently with vanilla and cardamom.

A sprinkling of castor sugar over the apple slices before baking softens the fruit and gives you a nice, icy mouth-feel.

The Apple Cake is best enjoyed warm, with whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream. Try other fruity delights like the Apple Pie and Crunchy Pineapple Cake .

If no castor sugar?

Tarla Dalal    We recommend using castor sugar. However, if you don''t have it, use powdered sugar which is lump free.
