This is a pretty easy coffee cake for afternoon tea break! (keke) and my granny smiths were in the fridge since 8th Dec 2008 !!! I only used it on 11th Jan 2009 ! and it still crunchy!
The best part of the cake was when it was freshly baked, the upper slightly-crunch-crust! I like when the cake was still hot, and u can see the whipped cream is melting off very soon too.
When I cut a slice for sis , she said it's good, half way eating, I pipe some cream on her cake, and she said " Excellent"!
So you get the clue now. It's best to serve with cream ; )
Also my sis requested to turn this cake slightly sour than sweet . So instead of not only reducing the sugar ( I still think should reduce further, may be to 150g)... I also add-in 1 whole fresh squeeze lemon juice ! and it's nice :)
When you prepare this cake, it's good if you can ready all the ingredients at a side, including sifting the flour, then start to peel the apples quickly ( I mix in the lemon juice to prevent apples from turning brown)
Also! never a good idea to use whisk to stir in the apples ( I know it's never an idea) , but, U know after digging all the apples out from the "whisk"... instead, I used my hands to mix it! haha
