Wherever you may be, Clarissa, I sincerely thank you for
this excellent cake!
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter,
2 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1/4 cup Calvados (apple brandy)
1 teaspoon baking soda dissolved in
1 tablespoon warm water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 Golden Delicious apples, peeled,
cored and sliced
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter and flour a 10-inch tube pan.
In a large bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt.
In another large
bowl beat the butter until it is light and creamy. Then
add the eggs, one at a time,
beating well after each addition. Add the Calvados, soda mixture and vanilla. Stir in the
flour mixture, apples
and walnuts just until well incorporated.
Pour the batter into the
prepared pan and bake approximately 1 hour,
or until the cake tests done. Let the cake
cool completely before turning
it out onto a cake platter. Clarissa likes to serve this
cake with whipped
cream flavored with a little Calvados, or with a mixture of Mascarpone
and whipped cream flavored with Calvados.
