APPLE CAKE




Dear friends, I hope everybody is having a good holiday weekend. We are having quite a busy weekend over here that I hardly had time to post this recipe, which I prepared on Christmas Eve. I found this cake recipe here. This is a simple one but delicious though made without any icing and it was perfect for us. We are not that much into icing and we love having some nuts topped on cake with dry fruits. I have used firm gala apples here and the apples were just a little bit softer after baking, which was so good. The changes I made to the original recipe are I used agave nectar instead of sugar, canola oil instead of butter, and whole wheat flour (King Arthur brand) instead of APF.

INGREDIENTS:
1. Whole wheat flour, 1-1/4 cup.
2. Diced apples, 1 cup.
3. Chopped walnuts, ½ cup.
4. 1 cup sugar or artificial sweetener.
5. Salt, a pinch.
5. Butter or oil, ½ cup.
6. Egg, 1.
7. Baking soda, ½ teaspoon.
8. Baking powder, ½ teaspoon.
9. Cinnamon powder, ¼ teaspoon.

PREPARATION:
Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon powder together. Beat the egg, butter, salt and sugar in a bowl until the mixture is frothy. Add the diced apples, along with flour mixture and mix everything just a few times until there are no lumps in the batter. Pour the batter into a greased baking dish and add the chopped walnuts on top. Bake the cake for 30 to 35 minutes at 350 degrees, let it cool, and enjoy.

Apple cake is really nteresting and appears delicious. Never prepared it before. Once I have an oven I am going to try all these out.

Recently I read somewhere that cakes can also be prepared in a pressure cooker. I did not try it but if that is possible then superb.

Happy new year to you and your family.
