We had an abundance of blackcurrants in our garden this year.DSCF3589

   When I say our garden I mean my mothers garden in Russia but I still consider it mine even that I don’t live in Russia for quite some time now.

   But never the less I had so much blackcurrant and so big(literally the size of the grape) that I couldn’t possibly eat on time for it still to stay fresh so the only choice was left for me is to bake!


    So I came up with this apple and blackcurrant cake and oh boy… it’s delicious! It’s so aromatic, perfect balance sweet and tangy for me and juicy berries just burst in your mouth! The cake itself is light and airy and a great companion to a piping hot cup of tea!
