Whoever said “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” knew what they were talking about. Apple has always been my favourite fruit when it comes to experimental cooking. It’s is very versatile and adapts to many recipes whether they are salads or pies or tarts or cakes. Or even a simple baked apple with a hint of cinnamon .

The apple is the pomaceous fruit of the species Malus Domestica. It is also one of the most widely cultivated trees. The tree is known to have originated in Central Asia and were taken to North America by European colonists. Apples find mention in mythology and religions of many cultures . About 69 million tonnes of apples were grown worldwide in 2010, with China being the largest producer.

In Norse mythology , the goddess Iðunn is said to provide apples to the gods that give them eternal youth. The fruit is linked to fertility as well. And since apple has been linked to so many myths since Adam and Eve, we will dedicate this column to eternal apple and its recipes.

Last week I went to a friend’s house in London for tea. She offered me an apple cinnamon cake, besides cookies, open sandwiches and of course tea. The cake was so tasty that I forced her to give me the recipe which I am going to share with you. But before we head to the dessert which is going to be today’s show stopper, I will also ask you to try your hands on a simple but delicious apple rocket salad.
