Apples are my favourite fruits to use in a dessert, whether pies or cakes. YesterdayI remembered about a cake my mum use to make when she had too many apples or did not have enough time to prepare a more elaborate one. So on Sunday morning I found myself with two apples in the fruit bowl and a great desire to have a sweet breakfast. But I didn’t want any biscuits or croissants, also because it was too cold to get to the closer coffee shop/new-agent to buy something. So I had to find a solution in house and I switch on my laptop to gather the recipes folder and came across this Apple cake that was ticking all the boxes: all the ingredients available in house, quick, easy and ideal for breakfast.
500g fo Apples
150g 00 flour
1tbs of baking powder
200g of sugar
1 glass of milk
A pinch of salt
A pinch of cinnamon for the apples
Start cutting the apples into thin slices. In the meantime switch on the at 180C. Beat the eggs and add in order: sugar, flour, salt, melted butter, flour, milk and in the end the baking powder. Put some baking paper in the selected baking tray (22cm large and must have high edges). Pour the batter in the tin and in the end add the apples on the top.
Bake at 180C degrees for 30 minutes. Before serving, sprinkle with icing sugar.
