Apple fondant and maple nut crunch

Apple fondant and maple nut crunch

I wanted to share with you today a fall dessert recipe that is a change from apple pie. A recipe to use your stock of apples if you too have stocked up on one of the favorite fruits of our magnificent Quebec this season! For my part, this year my picking took place at the Orchard LA apple d'Art, in Frelighsburg (84, chemin de Richford Frelighsburg). We discovered this organic and very old orchard during a walk and the look and the tasting were worth it! But let's get to the recipe. This delicious and slightly sweet cake plays on textures: a very fruity and melting dough at the bottom, and crispy pieces of nuts coated with buckwheat flour and maple syrup on the top. Don't be in a hurry, this cake is best just lukewarm or cooled, at room temperature! :-)

Here is the recipe that will make you rediscover the apple!
