Autumn has arrived, and its variegated leaves are slipping off the trees to colour the grass below.
It is also coloured with the redness of crunchy, juicy apples, like the Modì red.
A classic with all the lively aroma of spelt flour, our Modì apple cake is perfect for enjoying throughout the cold weather season. Soft and pleasingly sugar-sweet, it has that homemade flavour of the countryside one never gets tired of.
Serve with a hot apple tisane, a cinnamon tea or a spicy cup of chai.
