What is it about baking that is so intensely satisfying? I enjoy cooking in general, but when I make savory dishes, it’s primarily for the sake of eating them. But I love eating what I bake, too, and my desire to bake for my people makes me extra happy. Spreading baking joy is immensely powerful and calming.
This past weekend a very dear friend of ours stopped by and brought us the most decadent apple mascarpone cake. I ate it for breakfast, brunch and dinner…it was gone within 24 hours and now I can’t wait to have an oven again and make it myself.
Apple is one of those fruits that can easily be found in any month of the year. Its combination with mascarpone cheese makes this cake soft, moist and tasty. Kids love it. I encourage you to cook it for your kids and serve it for their snacks, school meals, or enjoy around the home.

8oz of sugar
1 cup of Mascarpone cheese
3 Golden apples
1 baking powder
12oz of flour

1/2 ground lemon zest
1 tbsp icing sugar
Peel apples, and dice them into small cubes and leave them aside.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar until foamy. Add the mascarpone and continue mixing.
Mix well for 2-3 minutes. We will add the lemon zest and a little vanilla.
We will gradually add the flour mixed with the baking powder and a little salt.
add the diced apples.
Mix it well so that the apple pieces distribute, and throw it in an open greased and flourished baking pan, or line it with parchment paper.
Bake in the preheated oven at 350F for about 50 minutes. You will do the toothpick test.
Take it out of the oven and let it cool until it gets lukewarm.
