Autumn apple cake

Friday, September 30, 2016

Days are getting shorter and colder, meaning we're getting hit by autumn after few really hot days last week. This will bring changes to our kitchens too.

Apple and cinnamon is just perfect autumn/winter combination, don't you think? There's something really warming and comforting about this flavour combo.


The other day I just really fancied baking. I was thinking apple and cinnamon muffins, but then realised I had no butter and going out to the shops wasn't an option at that time. Then I remembered I had a carrot cake recipe written down, in which the oil is used instead. Yay, I could make my cake after all!






Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tightly filled cup grated apple
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsb soda


Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 180C. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they start forming soft peaks, gradually adding sugar and then egg yolks, one at a time. Add oil, grated apple and sifted flour mix. Combine well. Bake for about 30 minutes.

If you fancy, you can add some raisins and/or chopped walnuts to the cake, for some extra bite.
