Today I’m sharing my son’s favourite apple cake , Quartre- quarts aux pommes aka French Apple Pound Cake . Real easy to make & taste so good . Buttery rich crumb cake with apples slices , just the perfect delectable cake for afternoon coffee break . This is definitely not a guilt free cake but it's so delicious that I ate half of the cake . Very addictive apple-licious cake ! LOL
