Swiss Apple Cake : Tarte Suisse aux pommes

Good morning, everyone! Here we are at the monthly appointment with Around the world with apple sweets, in which I participate with my friends Simona and Miria. My proposal for this month is a Swiss Apple Cake, a simple and genuine cake, prepared with very few ingredients, but really delicious. Swiss Apple Cake is halfway between a cake and a tart. It has a buttery and delicate dough, and is covered with slices of apples. Easy and quick to prepare, Swiss Apple Cake is perfect for a light and tasty breakfast or for an afternoon snack. It’s fantastic as dessert after dinner, and is an elegant gift to bring to those you love. I brought it to my dad, instead of the tradizional “Bignè di San Giuseppe” and it was very appreciated!

A lovely life to all and see you at my next recipe,
