Erlenbacher's Premium Apple Cake is made with a shortcrust pastry base which is filled with an apple filling made from Cripps Pink apples. The dessert, which is one of the producer's top sellers in Germany, is made up of 70 per cent fruit and is topped with roasted almond flakes. It comes frozen and pre-portioned and as with all Erlenbacher's products, it does not include any hydrogenated fats or oils, preservatives or artificial colours or flavours.
Last year Erlenbacher sold four million portions of its apple cakes in Germany and The Premium Apple Cake is the best seller along with another apple cake, among its range of 400 frozen desserts and cakes. It follows the launch of a number of Erlenbacher products in the UK in 2010.

Why you should buy it:
Erlenbacher managing director Bernhard Neumeister said the cakes provide a cost effective way for restaurants, hotels and pubs to offer a range of desserts to customers, particularly if the outlet does not employ a pastry chef. The producer's cakes and desserts are already selling well in the UK too, hence the new addition. "Our previous success has enabled us to expand our dessert range and reach out to new customers," said Neumeister.
