    OK, will do 2 pounds of granny smith apples

    but how do the apples not get mushing in the cooking process...any hints and tips to a cook, non baker icon_smile.gif

    Thank you

    I think the reviewer with the problem with her apples turning into applesauce used eating, not cooking apples, Mickey.

    You should be fine using Grannies to make this cake. They'll remain relatively firm after cooking. It looks wonderful.

    I think one of the keys to success is to tip it onto a serving plate when you pull it out of the oven (while its very hot, I mean). Otherwise, the apple slices might stick in the pan to cooling caramel.

    Mickey, that looks great and I am sure it will taste wonderful - what is that scattered around the cake, rose petals? You have such a flair!

    I don't normally TOOT my own horn, but the cake was GREAT!! Served with vanilla ice cream and yes, even with our friend for dinner, I licked the plate lol

    I was sooooooooooooooooo hoping that DH would be distracted while our friend was telling a story...well bugga me, I got caught at the last second lol lol no photo, so is just my word lol

    yes, is dried rose petals and if you must know I needed something around the cake as when I transferred it from the al foil to the pizza stone, some caramel got on the plate, so the rose petals hid the flaw and was great

    WHOO HOO and thanks for your time and comments too...always makes me feel good icon_smile.gif and right back to you icon_smile.gif
