The winner of last month’s challenge is Brennah, a 14 year old baker from Colorado! ♥️ Brennah jumped into the Bake Club a few month's ago with enthusiasm and has not only made every challenge recipe since she joined, she's made a handful of other difficult recipes with remarkable success. Congratulations Brennah! 🎉 Your next creation is going to look fabulous sitting atop your new copper cake stand!
let’s talk about this month’s challenge recipe…
This Apple cake is absolutely bursting with warm apple flavor thanks to concentrated Apple Cider Syrup, shredded sour apples, and a touch of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Apple Cider Buttercream delivers even more apple flavor and a thick, velvety layer of Dark Chocolate Ganache covers the cake with a blanket of bittersweet luxury.
The combination of flavors in this cake is one of my all time favorites - sweet and tart, fruity and chocolaty, fluffy and creamy. It's completely up to you whether you make the cake or cupcakes. And, while decorating your cake with apple roses is NOT required to enter this month's challenge, I do hope you'll try them. I've included step-by-step instructions in the recipe post and they are MUCH easier than you might think.
The September Bake Club Prize!
If you are this month's Bake Club winner, your name will be engraved on the handle of this beautiful wooden spoon and sent to you along with a hand carved natural root wooden bowl.
