Number of serving: 4
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

3/4 cup walnuts

2 apples, whatever you have

3 large, very ripe bananas

1/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup milk

2 tablespoons brandy

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter

2 1/4 cups superfine granulated sugar

4 whole eggs

3 egg yolks

1/2 cup milk

1 tablespoon cream

1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

5 ounces bittersweet chocolate


  • Oven preheated to 350F, with the rack in the middle. Butter a 12-cup bundt pan and set aside.
  • Place all of the dry ingredients except the walnuts into a bowl and whisk to combine. Measure out 1/2 cup of the dry mixture and toss it with the walnuts in a small, separate bowl. Set aside.
  • Slice the bananas into 1/3 inch pieces. Set aside 1/2 cup, and mash the rest of the banana slices in a bowl. Add the rest of the banana, the apples, and the rest of the wet ingredients. Stir gently to combine.
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together on low speed for about 5 minutes. The mixture should be light in texture.
  • Add the whole eggs and then the yolks one at a time, allowing each to incorporate before adding the next.
  • Alternate adding the dry and the wet ingredients, adding them in fourths. Don't pause between additions. Remove the bowl from the mixer and gently fold in the walnuts.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake for about 60 minutes, or until it passes the toothpick test. Allow the cake to cool on a wrack for 20 minutes before inverting it onto a plate.
  • In the meantime, make the glazes. Whisk together all of the glaze ingredients except the chocolate and divide evenly between two bowl.
  • Melt the chocolate either in a double boiler or simply in the microwave. Stir half of the melted chocolate into one of the bowls of glaze.
  • When the cake is warm, pour all three glazes over the top. Start with the white glaze, then the brown, then the pure chocolate. Slice and enjoy.
