Every second weekend or so daddy comes over and bring lots of goodies. Usually its veges, fruits, Tasmania salmon fillets and some marinated chicken/pork that mummy makes. Last weekend I think he must felt like he has neglected us lately because he brought over ALOT of food. Stuff that I didn't even know what to do with! For example, chokos or chayote- what? Do I stir fry? Roast? Seriously! What is this?!?!
(Btw I ended up stir frying it with some chicken- tastes pretty good actually)
Anyways so back to the point- with way too much fresh fruits in the fridge, I decided to make an apple cake :)
125g butter, slightly melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup plain flour
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup marmalade jam
fresh cream to serve
Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced.
Line a round pan with baking paper and grease it with some butter.
Place the butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Beat it for a few minutes and then add the eggs, beating each one at a time with the rest of the mixture.
Sift flours over butter mixture.- If you dont have a sift, just add a little bit of flour at a time and then beat gently.
Add the milk and combine.
Spoon into prepared pan.
Slice apples but also dice about a quarter of an apple. These should be half a centimetre pieces.
Place half the batter in the round pan and then sprinkle on top the diced apples. Arrange apples in slices around the top. Bake for about 45 minutes and rest for 10 minutes. Top with melted marmalade jam. Enjoy and serve with fresh cream.
I had some batter left so I made a few mini apple cupcakes :)
