Apple desserts aren’t always my favorite (I’ll choose chocolate every time), but this apple crumb cake is sooooo good. It has quite a few components (shortbread base, thinly sliced apples, custardy sauce, and crumb topping) and is a labor of love, but it’s a special dessert that’s worth the work.
Serve with a German Riesling.
We first tried chocolate-covered bacon at the Big Top Candy Shop on South Congress Avenue, and decided to make it for our friend Atticus’s bacon-themed first birthday party.
Making a double batch for a party on a warm Austin day wasn’t the best idea, but if you give yourself plenty of time and reserve this project for a cool day, the results are delicious.
During my junior high years, we lived in Hawaii, and I spent most of my time at my BFF Kim’s house. Her mom often made this layered rainbow Jello, and I though it was pure magic.
Now that I have a child, I want to add a little magic to his and his friends’ lives, so I’m excited to have found the recipe.
