FFwD ~ make-up post ~ Marie Helene's Apple Cake

I and Alice of acookingmizer

are playing catching-up or making-up

on completed recipes from
on
Here's my mini-version of this recipe:

full recipe but less than 3/4 cups of sugar and

I used half castor sugar and half brown sugar

two varieties of apples

cointreau instead of rum

 using 4 mini round pans (4" diameter) with removeable bottoms
**note to self: 3 mini round pans would have been better**
baking time 35mins
 
sweetness just nice
still warm from the oven!

  5. What a great idea to make the smaller cakes! I wish I had space to store more baking gear.
