Gingerbread Spiced Apple Cake – Aromatic Cake for Any Season

 

I don’t know about you, but I would have a big problem to say which sense is the most important for me. Being a foodie, I naturally can’t imagine living without the sense of taste. But the smell is also critical and interconnected with the taste. Do you know that if you couldn’t smell your food, you couldn’t correctly taste it? That’s why when you have a cold and a blocked nose, you don’t enjoy your meals. Almost everything you eat has a bland flavour then.

There is also another reason why the sense of smell is crucial for me: memories. Very often a particular scent I didn’t smell for a long time can bring a lot of detailed recollections from the past. But smell can also evoke associations, like for instance gingerbread spices and Christmas.

However, I must say that this Gingerbread Spiced Apple Cake is ideal for any season of the year. Firstly, it uses ingredients that are cupboard staples. So you can prepare it anytime without having to go shopping at first. Secondly, it is very easy to make. You basically have to mix all ingredients. Thirdly, although it has to be in the oven for approximately 1 hour, that is in truth good news. Because it only means that your home will smell wonderful for even longer. And lastly and maybe most importantly, Gingerbread Spiced Apple Cake is delicious!

Apples work so well with the gingerbread spice. They additionally keep this gingerbread cake moist without making it doughy. And the demerara sugar and honey, that are mixed and spread on top of the hot cake create a delightful, slightly crunchy topping. The only problem with this cake is that after you have one piece, you immediately want to have another one.
