Apples in Poundcake?

amyvc | Aug 31, 2008 05:31 AM

Hi All,
With Rosh Hashanah coming up, I'm looking to add apples to my Grandmom's most perfect delicious sour cream poundcake. The poundcake is a classic from growing up - dense yet light, buttery with a crunchy crust on top. I often add strawberries in a grand marnier simple syrup and whipped cream onto a slice of cake. However, this time, I'm looking to add apples (maybe with some kind of caramel/brown sugar flavor on the apples?) to the cake itself. For those who aren't aware, apples are a traditional food eaten at the Jewish new year. With that said, I'm not looking to make the classic Jewish apple cake. Definitely want it to remain my grandmom's poundcake which is sort of "my thing." I'd also add some kind of sauce on top if anyone had any ideas. Thanks to anyone who has ideas....
