5 ways with Pink Lady® Apples

cover image of basket of pink lady applesHi apple loving’ friends,

Here is a quick round up of my 5 top cake recipes using beautiful Pink Lady® Apples. It goes without saying that you could substitute alternative varieties ( but why would you ? ) Pink Lady® apples are perfect to bake with because they hold their shape well and don’t turn mushy *shudders.* or turn floury. They are crisp and sweet without being overly sweet, and are my favourite to eat or bake with. This post is not sponsored although in the interests of full disclosure, all these recipes came about because I entered a competition sponsored by Pink Lady®. You can read more about them here.

These are my top 5 recipes – in no particular order.

SPICED APPLE CAKE with SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE – perfect for slowdays, Sundays, and quick-I-need-cake-day-kinda-days. Serve with the obligatory scoop or two of ice cream.

This recipe is AMAZING – APPLE, RICOTTA, PINE NUT CAKE, if you like your cakes on the less sweet side, this Italian apple cake is perfect, serve with lots of icing sugar and a dollop of creme fraiche, its cake, dessert, afternoon tea all in one.

A round up of Apple recipes would not be complete with an Apple Pie, this EASY APPLE PIE WITH LATTICE PASTRY is a classic, and perfect for experienced bakers who want a quick recipe to novices who want an impressive end result – hello pretty lattice pattern.

Number 4 is such an unusual cake, I urge you to give it a try, it sounds odd, but in all honestly strong cheese and crisp Pink Lady® Apples are a great match, and the sweet/ salty combo is so delicious, I really hope you will give this interesting recipe a go! It is more sweet than savoury, so serve with creme fraiche or just plain dusted with icing sugar.  Recipe for CRUMBLY APPLE & CHEDDAR CHEESE PIE is here Pink Lady® Apple & Cheddar Cheese Tart

Last but not least, this APPLE & ROSEMARY CAKE was my favourite apple cakes for a very long time, and will always feature in my round up of favourite cakes. Its also an Italian type dessert cake, and again, serving plain or with creme fraiche is advised.
