Apple Cake / Gâteau aux pommes

Thanks to Jenn Segal from Once Upon A Chef to share this marvelous recipe! In the original recipe, Jenn used a springform pan. I just used a regular pan smaller. She also adds sugar on the top before baking, I though the cake was sweet enough without adding sugar on the top. This cake is easy to make and very…
