“Tried out this recipe and it indeed turned out to be a ‘Perfect Apple Cake’. It was my niece’s birthday on the 22nd. I fondly call her my apple, so I thought it was just apt to treat her to an Apple cake. Shall forward a pic to you for your viewing “.
This Apple Cake is super easy to make, light and delicately flavoured. It can be summed up in one word “Perfect”. I have served this ample times to my guests and they have always been charmed with it. Serve it warm or cold with a blob of ice cream or whipped cream; either ways it is a winner. Please try it……
Recipe : 4 large apples, 2 large eggs, 100 grams butter melted and cooled, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 3/4 cup flour, 3/4 teaspoon baking powder, pinch of salt, 3/4 cup sugar, 3 tablespoons rum, 1 teaspoon vanilla essence and 1/2 cup slivered almonds.
Sieve flour, baking powder & salt together and keep it aside. Peel and core apples and cut them into small square chunks. Beat eggs with a whisk till they are light and foamy. Add sugar and whisk till dissolved. Then add rum and vanilla essence and mix. Add half the flour and half the butter, followed by remaining flour and butter. Add cinnamon powder. Switch to a wooden spoon and fold in the apples and ensure that all of them are coated with the cake batter.
Take an 8 inch pan and grease it and line base and sides with wax paper. Gently pour the batter, smooth the top and sprinkle the slivered almonds on top. Keep in a preheated oven (170 deg C) and bake for 50-60 minutes till the top of the cake is golden brown and a skewer inserted comes out clean. If you want the top of the cake to be soft; cover the cake immediately with a foil. This ensures that the top crust of the cake is soft. Enjoy
