Marie Helene's Apple Cake



French Fridays with Dorie made her fabulous recipe for Marie Helene's Apple Cake.  It couldn't have been simpler. Basically a thin, buttery batter is folded around apple chunks.  There is no flavoring other than rum. It is essential for the cake to rest several hours for the flavors to mellow together.  It was worth the wait.


This was an instant favorite.
