The Best Apple Cake Ever!!

The Best Apple Cake Ever!!

My hubby loves apple pie and apple cake and I have made many different recipes for him over the years. However he pronounced this recipe the best one ever, which is the highest compliment there is. I used the recipe from Darren Purchese’s cookbook – Lamingtons and Lemon Tart, the original recipe came from his wife Cath and her Mum. It’s almost like a pie because there is such a thick layer of apple filling. YUM!!! Plus the recipe included a recipe for a wicked vanilla bean custard!! Just perfect to make in the Thermomix of course. I even bought the pink lady apples from the Huon Valley – one of our famous apple growing areas in Tassie.

Truffle Cooking 2019

It’s one of my favourite times of the year when I spend about $50 on a fresh Tasmanian grown truffle and cook with it for a few days until it is all gone enjoying every delicious mouthful YUM!!

Freshly made truffle butter is the base for some many awesome truffle recipes YUM!!
