Gâteau Basque Fantasie, page 110

First time I make Gateau Basque and first time I make a pie with a cover.

I used apples, pears, pecans, oranges and dried cranberries for the filling and I also used the ginger.

The filling was on the stove for close to 20 min and the liquid did not evaporate, there was just more and more liquid so in the end I used a strainer.

My family would have liked some whipped cream with the gateau and I agree with them.  My DH did not like it as he does not like spices in his cakes so note to self no ginger.  The oldest complained that the cakes for this blog do not have enough frosting.  Well we are baking french style and there is not much frosting.

I took this cake to work where it was appreciated!
