Caramel Apple Cake with Salted Caramel Buttercream

Believe it or not, this indulgent cake got its start in the healthiest of places—the produce section of the market. There I was, walking along, minding my own business, buying cauliflower like the responsible adult I pretend to be, when I saw the cutest miniature Gala apples, about 2 1/2 inches across. Obviously there are…

TWD: Apple-Coconut Family Cake

On paper, this Apple-Coconut Family Cake had a lot going for it. For one thing, I like apple, and I love coconut. Love. Try to use it as often as possible. Named a whole month after it. Want to call my first child Coconut LaBau. (Actually, I want to call my first child Angela-Merkel LaBau*,…

TWD: Cranberry-Lime Galette

For many of us, the capital-H Holidays are approaching, and I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve already been run over by a festive seasonal truck and it’s barely mid-November. The last few months I’ve felt like Wile E. Coyote frantically churning my legs in midair, trying to run across the sky…

TWD: All-American Apple Pie

It is said that people are either Beatles fans or Rolling Stones fans, and that your musical choice explains a lot about who you are as a person. I prefer to group people in entirely different categories: are you a cake person or a pie person? For myself, I fall firmly on the “cake” side…

TWD: Double Apple Bundt Cake, Drenched in Deliciousness

If you were around these parts for last week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, you may recall some apple-pickin’ shenanigans that resulted in a half-bushel of apples taking up residence in my kitchen. Yes, my friends, they are still with us. [looks guiltily in the direction of the kitchen, overflowing with apples] Fortunately I’ve had a…

TWD: Apple Tarte Fine

I made this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, a slender apple tart with puff pastry, and it was oh so good. But the real story belongs to the humble apples that went into the tart, and where they came from.

Apple-Apple Bread Pudding (MY PICK!)

Today is a banner day, my friends! Today is the day that we baked my chosen recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie, the online baking group I belong to. If you’re not a member of this group, please understand that this is a Big Deal. There are approximately five bajillion members (give or take a kablillion)…

TWD: Apple Cranberry Crisp

This week’s TWD pick, Apple Cranberry Crisp, was just about perfect. Juicy chunks of Honeycrisp apples (my fave!), tart fresh cranberries, and a streusel topping packed with coconut and ginger. It practically screamed EAT ME. Yes, it was aaaalmost perfect… But it was missing something: That’s better! What’s a warm fruit crisp without a big…
