Apple Cake

     This is an incredibly juicy and moist Apple cake I made some times back. I got the recipe from Vediojug and it turned out great! The recipe had originally needed Green apples but I made it using Red and it was fine that way too. As red apples are sweeter than green ones I reduced the amount of sugar in the recipe. The removal of aluminium foil can be tricky but if you do it with care, you get a perfectly smooth and shining skin to your cake which has  quintessentially  the apple pie flavour with apples and cinnamon.

        Let us come to the recipe..

Apple Cake

Things you will need:

5 red Apples (peeled) and cored
2 Eggs
230 g Sugar (powdered)
100 ml Cream
120 g Butter
80 g  all purpose flour
15 g Baking powder
a pinch of Vanilla essence
1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
Icing sugar (optional)

How to prepare:

  • Preheat the oven to 160 degree C or Gas mark 2.
  • Cut the apples to thin slices along length.
  • Put Butter and Cream in a pan over medium heat and let them blend together. Stir in vanilla essence.
  • Put the sugar into a bowl and add eggs. Whisk until it becomes a white fluffy mixture.
  • Mix the flour, baking powder and cinnamon and set aside.
  • Add the apples and using a strainer pour in the cream mixture. Add the flour mix and combine all the ingredients together gently, taking care not to break the apples.
  • Transfer the mixture to a baking dish lined with aluminium foil and bake for about 45 minutes.
  • Don't be alarmed if the top of the cake becomes a little over brown,because you are going to serve it upside down.

  • Remove the cake from oven and using a knife carefully separate the sides of the pie from the sides of the baking dish. Allow to cool for one hour or more.

  • Next loosen the foil from the sides of the pan. Now turn the cake over and very carefully separate the foil using a knife.

  • Cut and serve. You can sprinkle icing sugar over it or serve with whipped cream.

          Well,I think the pictures did more than justice to my cooking.They were taken by my hubby...A talent in him which I only recently discovered..When my attempt at photography proved to be a disaster,I promptly gave up my post to him..and look at the results!!ain't they stunning?
