Apfel Yum.


I was in a cakey mood this morning and wanted to bake something. The lack of butter somehwat cramped my style, but I found a recipe in the Joy of Cooking that I tweaked to suit my needs. It turned out beautifully - moist, rich and spicey-yummy. And there are no eggs, so that is a winner too (as my kids eat so many eggs that I am often short).

My husband says it reminds him of the German cake creations his mum would make for him as a child. Make this. Today.
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice or mixed spice
  • 1 cup buttermilk or a mix of yoghurt and milk
  • 0.5 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 finely chopped apples
Preheat the oven to 350F and grease an 8" x 8" pan. Mix the flour, sugar, spice, soda and apples. Mix int he buttermilk and oil until well combined and scrape into the pan. Bake for 45 mins.
