For some strange reason, my Dad just don't get that nobody in the family likes green apples. Well, not that my dad like green apples. He doesn't as well...
I know right. It's so complicated. Haha!
Anyway, so my fridge is perpetually filled unloved green apples. Mehs. ;/
While the OCD in me just can't stand food being left in the fridge for long! Haha! I have to find ways to get rid of those green apples.
It as a fruit served to my family obviously failed. We dislike the sourness of the fruit. T.T
It as an ingredient in salad failed as well. The sourness is still there~
Then came one day, when I was baking.
The light bulb finally flashed!
I could bake an apple cake/pie!
Damn dramatic, but that was truly how I felt. :D
With a bit of research, I decided on a Danish Apple Cake, adapted and modified from here. :)
ps: I modified mainly on the sugar level as I know my family prefers a less sweetened cake. ^^
150g butter, softened
180g plain flour
120g sugar [80g caster sugar plus 40g extra]
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla extract
5 green apples, peeled, cored and cut into thin wedges
I dare say this is a pretty simple bake that looks complicated.
Just like woman? :P
If you love your apple cinnamon pie, this cake will suit you.
Can you picture a moist cake sandwiched with yummy cinnamon apple?!
Now, I won't even complain if my Dad buys back the wrong type of apple aka green apple. Even the family loves the cake too! :D
Apple and cinnamon is a perfect match for sure. ^^
