Another yummy Eggless cake from my kitchen.These days I have a special fondness for baking and I bake like thrice a week!Small ones to go with our tea and no one at home is complaining about the change in the snacks either.Even the spice lover of the family doesn't hesitate to finish off his share and ask for more!
So,I saw this recipe in Divya's blog and baked it without a second thought.It looked very simple and I was sure it would taste great.
With a lone apple sitting in the fruit basket,it was the best way I could use it up.I added my favorite flax seeds which is actually not there in the original recipe.As usual I had one big and two small trays and the cakes vanished in no time!
Needless to say, the cake was awesome,very soft and had a hint of apple in it.The sweetness was just right and it was great to go with our evening coffee last weekend..
Here it is, the apple cake with blueberry jam for Lil angel...
Microwave Eggless Apple cake
Recipe Source: Easy Cooking
All purpose flour / maida - 1 cup
Apple- 1, peeled & grated [Do this just when you are ready to add it to the mix.Else it will turn brown like it did in mine]
Flax seeds- 1 tablespoon + a little for sprinkling on top
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Butter -A little less than 1/4 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup(or more if required)
Here is what I did...
Sift all purpose flour, baking powder and baking soda in a bowl and keep aside
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.And add to the flour.The butter was very hard in-spite of leaving it on the counter for several hours so I put in butter,sugar and half of the milk in a blender and blended it for 3 minutes and then I added it to the flour.
Next in goes the grated apple,flax seeds.Mix well and add a little more milk if needed.
Pour into a greased microwave proof tray and sprinkle some flax seeds
I baked it for 3 minutes on high power.
The time can vary.Check if the cake is done by inserting a skewer .If it comes out clean, the cake is done.
This is how much I baked.Two plain ones and one with flax seeds.
Slice and enjoy the fluffy cake as such or spread a little jam and savor it like how Lil Angel loved it....
So with this simple Apple cake,I wish everyone
Sending this cake to Suma's baking event
