Apple Rye Cake

Apple Rye Cake

Experience the delightful surprise of the Apple Rye Cake – a unique twist on the traditional apple cake. Initially, I was doubtful about using rye flour in a cake, suspecting it might affect the texture adversely. However, my skepticism was unfounded. The rye flour not only imparted a wonderfully tender and fluffy texture but also enhanced the overall flavor profile of the cake. This delightful discovery was also a pleasant surprise for those who tasted it, as they couldn't tell there was a special ingredient, yet were impressed upon learning about the inclusion of rye.

For an even more delectable experience, consider using brown sugar instead of white sugar, and enrich the cake with some chopped walnuts for added texture and flavor.
