Twice Baked Herb and Sour Cream Potatoes
Bibb Lettuce Salad with Bacon and Croutons
French Apple Cake
A classic Fall day with mild temperatures and puffy cumulus clouds passing overhead calls for a classic Autumn meal. The capper to this menu uses the staple fruit of the season---apples. Although this is called a cake, the taste, texture and appearance call to mind a bread pudding or a thick apple crêpe. The minimal amount of batter is simple to prepare with no stand mixer needed. Four large apples are folded into the batter. And for a play on texture, use different varieties of apples. I used Gala, Pink Lady, Golden Crisp, and one that a neighbor shared (I think it was a Macintosh). Serve it with a cinnamon and sugar infused crème fraîche for a delicious dessert worthy of rounding out a hearty meal.
