This is the perfect time of the year to make an apple cake! This particular apple cake has a little something that makes it extra delicious: frangipane! This sweet almond paste with a light rum flavor perfectly complements the golden apples, which makes for a one-of-a-kind cake. Enjoy!
You can find the recipe in French here. The French recipe uses rum liquor, but I chose to substitute with Imitation Rum Extract. Though it crossed my mind to completely bypass the rum, I am really glad I didn’t, because the rum flavor is really what makes the cake!
