Food | Apple Cake

by - Monday, May 15, 2017


Let's start the week with something sweet, shall we? 😍

I can't really remember last time I baked something, so when the opportunity arose, I thought "why not?!". Grabbed my tools, browsed for a nice recipe and let's go!
Baking cakes brings me back to my childhood, where I would "help" my grandmother with baking and tried to learn a few things from her. It was always a special thing; she knew how to make those heartwarming cakes, simple but tasty. And till this day, still my favorites!
I wish I have had the opportunity to bake for her....

Recipe adapted: Original recipe.
1/2 cup of melted butter
1 cup of self-rising flour
3/4 cup of sugar
pinch of salt
4 eggs
3 apples
1 tsp of cinnamon
raisins (optional and as many as you wish)

How to:
For the first time, I decided to use my kitchen robot for mixing up all the ingredients. The process was much faster and smoother. So, I totally recommend it.
On a separate bowl, chop the apples in small cubes, add the cinnamon and raisins and let them aside while you prepare the batter.
First, mixed the eggs with the sugar, then added the flour bit by bit. then the butter, followed by the salt.
At the very end, before putting it on the baking tray, add the mixture of apples and raisins and give it a little mix, with a spatula.
Baked at 180C for about 40min, on a pre-heated oven (at 190C).

I used the Philips Avance HR7778 Food processor to mix all the ingredients.

This cake was probably one of the best ones I ever baked and most definitely the easiest one to prepare!
Totally recommend it! It was gone in a blink of an eye. 😉
