A couple of weeks ago the family (Boaz's first, I might add - unless you count last year in mummy's tummy) went apple picking in the Annapolis Valley. We had a great time which I wrote about for Food for Thought - Foodtv's blog -check it out.
Here it is two weeks and several dishes later - Apple Crisp(more than once), the Normandy Apple Tart, plus lots of munching right off the plate...and I still have some left which I wanted to use for a special apple dessert for this week's Jewish Holiday - Yom Kippur, when we fast from sundown to sundown. The Break Fast meal in our home is usually dairy and I wanted to make something appley to round it out. (Stay tuned for the entire menu tomorrow.) My first choice was a Polish Apple Tart from A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking but it would have taken too long. Don't whine...I promise to make it next week.
So I decided on another option - Everybody's Jewish Apple Cake. Truth be told, I've never made a traditional apple cake and I don't remember my mother making one either. But my mother-in-law would never make a Friday Shabbat meal without one. So, given that the in-laws are in Toronto, and we are here in Halifax, I thought I'd make one and think of them whenever I bite into a slice.
I hope you all enjoy it. And to everyone - Jewish or not - I wish you peace, prosperity and joy.
