Apple Cinnamon Cake...

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. 

Ingredients:
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 Egg
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.

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…
