Ginger Apple Torte

November 19, 2010 • 9 Comments

This week, Merrill is flying solo (Amanda was attending a very different video shoot for The Martha Stewart Show) but drbabs' fragrant Ginger Apple Torte -- a brilliant melding of gingerbread and apple cake -- makes for good company.

This week's videos were once again shot and edited by talented filmmaker Elena Parker. For more creative Thanksgiving desserts that buck the pie standard, see the contest page here.

Looks lovely. Reminds me of your delicious applesauce cake in flavor profile. Wondering why you sautee the apples, as compared to other recipes that also do apples sandwiched by batter but with raw apples that have been left to sit in cinnamon and sugar for a few minutes.

Hi ATG117. I created this recipe for the "Your Best Non-Pie Thanksgiving Dessert" contest. I decided to saute the apples in the browned butter and sugar because I thought the caramel added another layer of flavor and specialness. I made it a few times before I came up with this technique, and really, the ginger cake with chunks of apples cut up in it is really good, but sauteeing the apples and letting them caramelize, then layering them into the batter, makes it more of a special occasion dessert.
