Me. Me. Me.
Didn't take me long after swearing off food forever on January 1, 2018.
I couldn't help myself because I was intrigued by the style of this unusual cake. The recipe is was inspired by one I saw in a recent German cooking magazine. Baking whole cored apples into a cake.
In my version, I switched up the recipe and the flavors a bit. Admittedly, I was a bit skeptical while creating it. I wasn't sure it would come together. Specifically, I was worried the apples would not be soft enough, but it worked perfectly and the results were delicious.
The most labor-intensive part of making this recipe is peeling and coring the apples, once those are done, everything else comes together pretty quickly. The apples need to be prebaked for 15 minutes, in that time you can get the cake batter and Nutella filling together.
