Apple cake with cranberries
I am lucky to have several apple trees and some of the apples just have to be used, so I had to bake a cake again…
This one was just something quick, while the oven was still warm:
1 dl brown sugar (a bit more than 1/3 cup)
1 dl melted butter (3 oz)
1½ dl flour (a bit more than 1/2 cup)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 dl oatmeal (a bit more than 1/3 cup)
1 dl chopped walnuts or pecans (a bit more than 1/3 cup)
½ tsp. salt
150 g cranberries (1/3 pound)
1-2 TBSP sugar
Beat the eggs and brown sugar creamy and beat in the melted, cooled butter.
Sift the flour and baking powder together and stir it into the eggs. Stir in oatmeal, nuts and salt.
Peal the apples and slice them thinly. Stir them into the batter and fill it into a buttered pan (22 cm/8-9 inches). Scatter cranberries on top and sprinkle the sugar over them.
Put the pan in the middle of the oven at 180 degrees C/ 360 degrees F for about 35 minutes. Check the baked cake with a toothpick – it is done, when the toothpick comes out clean.
Let the cake cool for at least 30 minutes. Enjoy as it is or with some sour cream or vanilla ice cream on the side.
