I love cooked apples either in the main course (pork with apple etc) or as desert or cakes. I really like them because they have a sour/sweet taste and an aroma that can be accentuated with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and orange.
At the end of August the Cypriot cooking apples (kathista) appear in the market and they are at their best at the beginning of the season when they are more sour than sweet. I really like this apple cake because it is full of apples so it’s very moist almost like Glafoutis.
This recipe has developed after a lot of trials to our family’s taste.
