APPLE CARDAMOM CAKE
with Lemon Maple Frosting
from Dreena's Cookbook Vive Le Vegan (p. 114).
WARNING: This is some serious cooking!
The red swirl at the top of the cake is a thin peel from a red apple. One year I had ALOT of apples to turn into apple sauce or apple butter, so as a motivation we had an apple peeling contest to see who could get the longest peel intact off the apple. Dave held the record for several days, but eight year old Melissa practiced up on it and now is the apple peeling champ in our family.
