It happened already a few times – I lost ALL my data. Either my hard disk just died on me, I forgot to save something, or kept things on multiple devices in multiple locations, which is not good either. I’ve learned my lesson and now I back up my stuff and click save frequently when writing.

Imagine my surprise when after finishing polishing my post (that I was particularly proud of) and working on the photos I discovered that the post has vanished! Just like that. The weirdest thing was that the version from X hours before was the one still visible while the latest one was nowhere to be found. And I did click SAVE button many, many times. No lesson from it either as I don’t even know what happened.

Leaving my frustration behind let me tell you about this apple cake. It is a very good cake. It has apples in it and just that make it worth of trying. I love apples. I also love potatoes and poppy seeds, just so you know it.

The recipe (that I found here) calls for very thin apple slices but I wouldn’t worry about it too much. However if you happen to have a food processor then I would encourage you to use it as it took me probably more time to peel the apples than cut them into 1/8 inch thin slices. The cake itself is very moist and has a distinct, pleasant, flavor. Little bit lemony perhaps. Nice structure, squashy (in a good way) – not too much – just enough to tickle your palate. It pairs wonderfully with a cup of tea or a black coffee and your bum on the couch under a warm blanket. Try it. I’ll bet you’ll like it.

Happy Friday!
