Just another one of my retro sweets obsessions. Now and then I seem to come across this lush, moist apple cake which I just love. It’ not exactly a cake, it’s not a bread pudding nor a trifle but packed with apples, rum raisins above all a nice rum aroma. I came across cake (namely ‘apple cake’) this at a Japanese countryside supermarket, sold as “the best selling cake in the country” ,
This is a ‘retro (authentic) biscuit’ which a store near by sells now and then for as low as 250yen (about US$2.50) , not only is it cheap but it is an authentic biscuit probably popular around the late 60s or so, consequently it sells fast, I mean fast (I think to a lot of elderly people).
