|Powdered sugar can hide a multitude of sins....apparently blackened apples is not one of them! ;)|
|Look at all of that fruit!|
This dessert was a delicious way to celebrate the apple. The fruit was the star, and amazingly, even the scorched pieces were good, tasting of caramelized sugar. The filling reminded me of my family's favourite apple cake, Marie-Hélène's Apple Cake, another Dorie creation from her book, Around my French Table, which is really baked apples held together with a smidgen of cake batter. Both are homages to the apple and we love them!
The recipes for the kuchen and the crème fraîche are from the book Baking Chez Moi. Visit here to see everyone's lovely tourtes.
