The Apple Lady Apple Cake

I was browsing through my blog and realised I did not do much bakes with apples, only an apple muffins I've did a couple of years back and the most recent ones were apple cheddar galette and  mini rose apple tart :) Actually there are several ways of incorporating fresh apples into cakes, each giving different texture and taste. So I decided to bake a cake that is filled with lots of apples...really lots of apples! :) I've first saw this recipe at Lena's blog, I really loved the look of the cake which have layers of apples in between. Unlike usual sponge cake, it tasted more like a pudding cake, moist and custardy....indeed a very nice cake to serve as afternoon tea!

yeah i remember this cake even tho it was baked long time ago. The batter was quite little with so much apples and was not sure if the cake will ever get formed. Good that it had turned out well too !
