We’ve made applesauce cake plenty of times, but to my recollection, we’d never made apple cake before. Jessica found this recipe online, so we thought we’d give it a try.
According to the recipe, the cake would be dense. It certainly was that, although it didn’t take 45 minutes to bake. Yeah, try an hour and a half. Even at that point, the middle was still a bit gooey. I’d had enough though, so I said screw it and took it out anyway.
But the custard is where things really took a wrong turn. I think I accidentally cooked the eggs while making the custard, resulting in a chunky, school cafeteria mystery food appearance. “Sauce”? More like “thick gravy.” Whatever, I still liked it.
