The “rather ugly” cake that is full of flavors
Yeh’s blog, “My Name is Yeh,” is filled with some of her most treasured and heartwarming memories, anecdotes of life on the farm with her husband Nick Hagen and their two daughters, and delicious recipes.
In a 2018 blog postYeh demonstrated making his super indulgent recipe for Carmel Apple Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.
She shared her memories of this favorite dessert in a passage on the recipe.
“When I was in college. For a good few years in a row, we all got together and cooked a feast at my cousin Jamie’s house. It was still a super solid classic Thanksgiving meal,” Yeh explained.
“For dessert, there were a few pies, but this caramel apple bread cake also looked pretty ugly, but it tasted so good,” she continued.
“It had a deeply caramelized flavor and it was extremely dense, but big chunks of crunchy tart apples broke it up. It was the kind of cake you couldn’t pass without shaving off an extra piece. Indeed a hot contender for winning the honor of ending the bite,” Yeh concluded.
What are the ingredients for Molly Yeh’s Carmel Apple Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting?
There are quite a few ingredients in this recipe.
However, although it may seem difficult, the step-by-step method that Yeh uses to describe his manufacturing process is quite simple.
Cake ingredients include plain and whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, brown sugar, and sugar.
You also need canola or vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla and Granny Smith apples.
Yeh says the Granny Smith apple variety turns out to be the best kind for this dish.
“Use granny smiths because they’re super starchy and firm, and they won’t add too much moisture to the dough,” Yeh said in his blog.
The cream cheese filling includes softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, heavy cream, and kosher salt.
