We continue our recipes of the cold North for a Christmas that changes a bit!
Today we travel to Canada with this apple & maple syrup cake !

120 g melted butter
60 g of sugar
25 ml of milk
A pot of mascarpone
50g icing sugar
Some shortbread cookies for the decor

Then the apples.

Let cool and mix mascarpone & icing sugar.
Apply icing with a spatula & shortbreads for decoration.
Food / wine pairing?
As this recipe is rather sweet, prefer a Bordeaux crémant brut like the crémant Fort de Rauzan or for a still wine, a dry white Bordeaux to counterbalance, as Le Noble.
