We love surprises – of the nice kind – when we are baking. Some of our favourites have been unexpected creations. This treasure was created out of a bundle of sweet Fiji apples, a cluster of caramel chips and roasted almonds!
With chunks of caramel and tart n sweet Fiji apples nestled in a soft and buttery cake, this Apple & Roast Almond Cake is the essence of simplicity. A winter must-bake.
With chunks of caramel, roasted nuts and tart n sweet Fiji apples nestled in a soft and buttery cake, this Apple & Roast Almond Cake is the essence of simplicity.
Cream 500gm butter with 2 and a half cups sugar.
Add 3 eggs. Whisk well.
Add 1 tsp vanilla essence, a tsp of crushed cinnamon + all spice (or cloves if you don’t have all spice berries) a pinch of salt, 3 cups flour, 3 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp baking soda. Mix.
Add 3 cups unsweetened apple sauce (made out of 6 apples, cored, cut and crushed)
Add a handful of caramel chips and 1 cup roasted, skinned almonds. Mix the batter well.
Pour batter into a greased baking dish, top with few more almonds and bake for 45 mins – 1 hour, at 200 degrees.
This cake browns fast, so monitor the temperature closely.
Cut into slices and serve with hot tea or coffee – a great monsoon or winter combo!
