Patrick Walsh, the single father in the novel Truths I Never Told You, loved to bake apple cakes. It was comfort food for the family. Do you have special desserts for your family gatherings? I will always remember my grandmother Katie’s chocolate meringue pies.
Instead of a traditional apple cake, I decided to try this French-style Apple and Rum Cake. It is a single layer cake that is so easy to make. It would be perfect to serve at a book club meeting, whenever we get to meet in person again.
