Late harvest wine rome beauty apple cake recipe

 These apples are pretty. Goes from soft pink tone  to pale yellow. The Rome Beauty are crisp, succulent and not excessively sweet. In fact these and fuji apples are our family favorites. Unfortunately these last apples can not find around here.

I could not still having a smile of satisfaction and joy when I saw the other day on the market close to home here.

I ate one and then I thought about what it can be done with them. As always the fridge was my inspiration and I saw half a bottle of sweet wine, that I had used to poached a few pears the other day.

The idea of a cake covered with a fragrant and crisp topped with a generous layer of  poached apples  would be a good ideia for a dessert, or for a tea time.So,  I began to bake my delicious cake  Hope you like my today's  suggestion  and have a good week.

1 Rome beauty apple , peeled and finely sliced
