Due to popular demand (no, don't laugh... folks are really asking for it) I'm putting up this wonderful cake recipe too right on the heels of my last recipe. This cake is seriously good, it gets wolfed down in seconds, and the divine smell of cinnamon wafting through the house is in a way invigorating.
1 cup maida (or all purpose flour)
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup castor sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
5 1/2 Tablespoon butter (roughly 40 gms)
1/2 cup milk
2 medium sized apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
First combine half the powdered sugar with the cinnamon powder in a bowl. Also combine the maida with the baking powder in another container.
The rest of the sugar and the 40 gms of butter go into another bowl.
Drop in one egg and beat up the mixture.
Now alternatively add the flour...
and the milk stirring after each addition to form a nice creamy batter of pouring consistency.
Grease and flour the cake tray, pour in half the batter...
Arrange sliced apples in layers over the batter...
Sprinkle half the sugar cinnamon powder over the apples...
Now pour the remaining batter over the apples... and sprinkle the rest of the sugar cinnamon powder over it. (I did not use the entire thing, I thought it might be too sweet...so I sprinkled only a little and it was good enough. It depends on you really... use your intuition.) Now stick it in the oven and let it bake for 20 to 25 minutes till it turns slightly brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out looking clean.
Here is the Apple Cinnamon cake straight out of the oven, looking wonderful & smelling heavenly.
The juicy succulent apples inside...
I really love this cake, will definitely make it again using double the quantity of ingredients. Do give this a try and have a wonderful time reveling in the pure pleasure that wafts out of the oven and fills your home when you bake this delightfully easy cake.
