One bowl is a blessing.
Always, especially if you are at the mercy of two cantankerous maids who are threatening to take a holiday on the same day.
So totally ,so we do Carpe Diem and bake -messing up as less as possible.
Seize the day ,with apples and whole wheat flour.
And in a mad moment,top the cake with an oat crumble.
Mad and so bl***y healthy...it makes me wonder at myself...
A loaf tin and two muffins for company.
My error of judgement,chopping the apples into medium sized dices . When someone chops and peels for you ,you usually bend and grin,cursing them silently. So advice- grate the apple or chop in very very small dices.
reason-when you slice the cake the bigger apple pieces ruin the look of the slice.
Easy -Peasy, it took me 2 minutes to whisk and I used a spatula,not a whisk. you may omit the egg, I added the egg because this was whole wheat, to sort of complete the proteins .
The oats were an after thought and tasted yum and crisp.
A soft slice of apple cake topped with a crisp crumble.
Whole Wheat Apple Cinnamon Cake with Oat Crumble...
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup plain flour
3 apples peeled,cored and chopped
3/4 cup sugar-I ground mine in the mixer
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup yogurt
1 tsp ground cinnamon(I grind my cinnamon with sugar ,so I added 2 tsp )
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vinegar
for the oat crumble
1 tbsp soft butter
2 tsp oats
2 tsp sugar
Grease and flour a loaf tin and line a couple of stand alone muffin cups.
Heat your oven to 180C.
In a large bowl add the apple, yogurt,oil ,egg and the sugar powder.
Pop the flours, baking powder and baking soda and powdered sugar with the cinnamon powder. stir and add a pinch of salt.
Stir to break lumps. If you grate the apple ,you can avoid the egg or reduce the oil and make it lower in fat. Almost like an uncooked apple sauce cake.
In a small bowl mix the oats, sugar and the butter .
Pour the cake batter into the loaf tin and the stand alone muffin cases and sprinkle the oat mix on top.
Bake in the the oven for 35 -40 minutes. you will need to take the muffins out after about 25 minutes...not a great thing to do...but...whatever floats the boat???
I deleted some pictures,trying to clean off the whats app images and deleted some pictures by mistake...
This cake was an awesome snake-read healthy for sweet child and other growing up kids.
The cake is light and not dense,unlike most egg less whole wheat cakes.
An a slice of cake with cold milk...
Awesome for an insatiable appetite.
So what are you baking today???
