Apple Pear Cake Recipe

10.18.13 by Jackie

My husband Lulu's favorite uncle (it's safe to say this because Daddy only has one brother) generously gave us two large bags filled with apples and pears freshly picked from his garden. They were so sweet that we ate a lot of them straight away.

After having our fill, I prepared several cakes with the remaining fruit. The recipe is fairly basic: simple cake batter, flavored with both vanilla beans and vanilla extract, poured into a non-stick mold and topped with cubes of three apples and one enormous pear. Once the cake was hot and ready, I drizzled it with a little bit of Calvados (apple-flavored liqueur) for extra yumminess.

Meyer Lemon Yogurt Cake Recipe

I've made this cake recipe for years. I think I found the recipe when I was a little girl on the back of vanilla sugar packets that are commonly available in France. I haven't changed the base of the cake batter much since then.

The great part of this recipe is that the measuring tool is the yogurt container. And after making it once, you'll probably never have to refer to the recipe again. Simply remember "1, 2, 3, ½, 3": 1 yogurt, 2 measures of sugar, 3 measures of flour, half a measure of oil (½), 3 eggs, 1 packet of "levure" (baking powder) and 1 packet of vanilla sugar.

Instead of serving the cake plain, which by the way is great with tea, I flavored the cake with Meyer lemon zest and glazed it with a Meyer lemon mascarpone glaze. It was truly fantastic!
