Groovy apple cake
We have several apple trees in our garden and especially one has given us lots of apples this year.
It is a Belle de Boskoop – a very good cooking apple.
To day I made an everyday cake with lots of apples in it.
For 1 big cake:
3/4 Cup (150 g) sugar – I used cane sugar
1 tsp. vanilla powder
1/3 Cup (75 g) melted butter
3/4 Cup (100 g) flour
4 TBSP (50 g) potato starch
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup (50-75 g) shredded marzipan (almond paste)
2 pounds apples (peeled, cored and cut in thick wedges)
A little sugar and cinnamon for topping
Preheat the oven to 320 degrees F (160 degrees C).
Beat the eggs and sugar thick and creamy and add the melted (not hot) butter.
Sift the flour, potato starch and baking powder together and fold it into the eggs together with the marzipan.
Pour the batter into a prepared 9 inch cake tin and stick the apples in. Sprinkle a little sugar mixed with a little cinnamon on top and pop the cake into the oven for about 1 hour. Check with a toothpick if it is done and let it rest in the tin 15 minutes before unmolding.
Serve warm or cold as it is or with whipped cream or sour cream (crème fraiche) on the side.
