Spiced Apple Cake

Spiced Apple Cake:

An extra moist apple cake with spices for the extra flavor.

This recipe serves 8 people.

1 cup AP flour.
1 apple peeled and grated.
¼ cup butter.
¾ cup granulated sugar.
¼ cup apple sauce.
½ cup whole milk.
1tsp baking powder.
½ tsp baking soda.
½ tsp nutmeg powder.
½ tsp cinnamon powder.
½ tsp vanilla essence.

For decorating:

1 apple very thinly sliced
Apricot glaze.

Preheat the oven at 180 C and grease and dust a baking tin with flour ready to use for baking the cake. Mix the AP flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg powder and cinnamon powder. Sieve it twice so that everything is evenly mixed. Set aside.

Now take butter at room temperature and add sugar in it. Beat it for 5 minutes. Then add apple sauce. Stir for minutes and add milk and vanilla essence. Stir for 2-3 minutes till it is a uniform mixture. Now add this mixture slowly into the dry mixture and stir so that everything is folded into a uniform mixture. Pour this batter into the baking tin kept ready and bake at 180 C for 40-45 mins till golden brown. Using a skewer prick the cake at the centre, if it comes out clean, the cake is done.

Fresh from oven.

Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes. Take the cake out on a plate by turning the container upside down. Decorate the cake with thinly cut apple slices.

For the apricot glaze, place a 2 tbsp of apricot jam in a small pan, along with a squeeze of lemon juice. Heat the jam, stirring until it melts and is runny. Pour the melted jam into a wire sieve set over a bowl. Stir the jam to help it get through. Return the strained jam from bowl to pan. Keep the glaze warm and brush it generously over the freshly sliced apple until fully coated.

Slice and serve.
