Happy Monday everyone!
Maybe you aren't too happy that it's Monday and the weekend is over. In which case, let's start the week with something sweet that, I'm sure, will make you feel a lot better. Let's fill the house with the delicious aroma of this comforting apple cake and think: only four more days until Friday!
Today's cake is super soft, moist and wholesome. Every bite is filled with the sweet, tart flavor of soft apples. This recipe is very simple, fast and easy to follow. You really can't go wrong!
Ingredients: to make a 9 inches cake.
- 3 apples, about 1.5 lb
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of sugar
- 4 oz (1 stick) of unsalted butter
- 8 oz milk
- 1.5 cups flour
- 1 lemon, zest and juice
- 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
- a pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder. I used "lievito vanigliato" from Bertolini (16 gr of baking powder)
- powder sugar for decorating
Step 1: Melt the butter by placing it in a heat resistant cup (I use a Playtex glass cup) and placing it in a pot of simmering hot water. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Really simple, right?
