Apple spice cake
Torta di mele con semi di anice, cardamomo e cannella
I’m not quite sure who to credit for this apple spice cake recipe, which has been part of my autumn and winter repertoire for years. Loads of fresh apples turn the ordinary pound cake into a moist and fruity dessert, and the spicing makes you think of liquorice and fragrant Arabic bazaars.
The cake can also be made with peaches, plums, apricots, pear and other kinds of fruit.
