Emily Luchetti's Grandmothers' Cake?

Thanks so much! So I made the cake, and it was FANTASTIC! I still can't believe the amount of brown sugar but it certainly worked. Everyone loved it.

I'm intrigued by your chocolate mousse cake! Is it cake with mousse? Sounds so yummy!

Thanks for your reply.

Emily Luchetti's Grandmothers' Cake?

Hello, wise bakers. I have started making Emily Luchetti's Grandmothers' Cake from the Stars Desserts cookbooks (a favorite cookbook but a new recipe for me). She calls for 2-3/4 cups of brown sugar. Could that be?!?!? Ina Garten's chocolate cake recipe calls for 2, so maybe its totally off. I generally follow baking recipes very carefully, but I'm about to lop 3/4 c of brown sugar from the recipe. Would that be a mistake? Has anyone made this cake before? Need help, asap. Thanks!!!

What to do with Green Apples from a Sonoma Farm?

Hi there! I was given a bucket full of green apples from a farm in Sonoma. They are tart and dry with a a little bit of juice. Any suggestions on what to make (besides applesauce)? I don't know what type of apples they are and I am often confused about which apples to use in baking. I'd love your suggestions! Thanks.
