Bizcocho de Manzana (Apple Cake)


Enjoying the weather…? Not me, it’s been raining and windy here for the last few days. It feels like winter, wet and cold!! I don’t like it… But fall is a pretty unpredictable time and I’m sure it will start getting nicer soon. Let’s hope so.

Fall also brings all of the yummy fall fruits and vegetables. At the farmers market this weekend, I saw these gorgeous apples, and I immediately thought of apple cake. I had to bake something with those apples. And that’s what I did.

I love a good pie just like the next person, but my heart was set on a cake this time. The inspiration of this cake comes from my mom. She bakes a delicious apple cake. I changed the recipe a little bit to make it more my own, but the taste is pretty close.

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
