This exquisite Mexican-style cake is festive, soft and full of apples! It is made with panela, a traditional Mexican ingredient for its unique and sumptuous flavour. First, the pela is mixed with butter and poured into a cake tin before the apple layers are added to create a glossy caramel topping with a molasses-like flavour. Panela is then incorporated into the batter along with the traditional Mexican warm spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to sweeten and give a wonderful flavour to the cake. Once the pie is done and slightly cooled, it is turned out onto a serving plate to reveal the caramelised apple topping, and served with cream and dulce de leche de leche de leche.
