Yeasted Apple Cinnamon Cake.
It got a little mangled as I didnt line the tin and it stuck. :S But, How delicious.
I have always wondered what I would do to make a cake minus the raising agents! Some one posted I think on here their version, it was I think Nectarine? I may be delusional so who knows.
I found the recipe, and made the cake and it is almost gone (and it isnt even 24 hours old!
The original recipe can be found here
I made a few changes to it.Makes One (9-inch) Cake
2-1/4 cups all purposeflour, but I used bread flour.....it was all I had on hand!)1/2 cup Muscovado sugar 2 teaspoons yeast1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup milk 1/3 cup Sunflower oil/Rice bran oil (an oil that is good for you and has a high smoke point) 2 large eggs 2 sweet eating apples , cored and diced.1 teraspoon cinnamon Topping1 sweet eating apple, peeled cored and sliced2 tablespoons Muscovado sugar1/3 teaspoon cinnamon Method
In large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat water, milk, and oil until very warm (120o to 130oF).
Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium peed with an electric mixer. Scrape the bowl occasionally.
Add the eggs and 1/2 cup of flour. Beat for 2 mins at high speed (I had to lower my speed as the gluten was getting worked and the flour was winding up my beaters!)
Stir in the remaining flour to make a stiff batter. I had to add en extra 1/4 cup to do so.
Stir in the chopped up apple pieces.
Grease and line a cake pan, arrange the apple slices in bottom and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Pour in the batter and spread it out evenly.
Leave it to rise in a warm place for 1 hour...ot until it doubles in size.
Above the batter has just been poured into the pan
Here, ready to bake.
You might like to do as the recipe suggests with the apple slices and place then on the top of the cake instead. I found the cake bottom burned exposed in the oven, but I liked how the apples embedded themselves in the cake on the bottom (which became the top)
So you could do it my way and cover the cake with parchment thats been well greased to stop it from burning.
Place into a preheated oven at 190 degrees oven for 45 mins until it is cooked in the middle. Test as per usual cake testing. I turned the oven down for the last 15-20 mins to 180 degrees celcius as it was burning.
remove and cool. Its lovely warm, but Delicious cool! With butter, or even golden syrup and cream!
