This was the last cake recipe I hadn't tried yet from the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook! It is an apple pie layer cake. It's very messy and hard to slice but it is delicious!
The cake layers are a brown butter cake brushed with an apple cider soak. The layers are filled with liquid cheesecake, pie crumbs and apple pie filling. The top of the cake is iced in a pie crumb frosting and sprinkled with pie crumbs.
Pie crumb frosting was really interesting. It was a little bit salty and more savory than most frosting is. When combined with the rest of the elements of the cake though, it is absolutely amazing! I'll definitely make this cake again!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
