Apple Cake

As you know already, both my grandmothers passed the love for cooking to me, and started teaching me the ropes since I was a little girl. The first recipes that grandma Lucy taught me were her Magdalena and Borracho. When she said that we were making an Apple Cake, I was stunned. Usually she didn’t bake anything other than Borracho or Magdalena for our sunday family gatherings. I remember that she had someone coming over so she wanted to bake something different.

This is an amazingly easy cake to prepare- and you’ll be surprised of how fast you’ll prepare it. What takes most of the time, is peeling and dicing the apples. The batter doesn’t take much time to prepare.  I made this cake last Sunday, since my cousin and his family were coming over so I thought it would be a good dessert to have coffee with. It turned out to be a success, and when my dad wanted a piece of it… he just got crumbs! I baked a second cake on Thursday morning.   As of today (Friday) there’s only a third of the cake left! Got some good critiques from dad and my aunt saying that I made it just like Gradma Lucy! Couldn’t be happier! Hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I did.

A Foodies’ Kitchen Original Recipe
Rinde: 12 porciones

Ingredientes:

8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons milk
4 apples, peeled and diced
cinnamon to taste
nutmeg to taste

Directions:

  1. Grease and flour a square 8″ baking dish.
  2. Mix apples with the nutmeg and cinnamon. Place on the greased 8″ baking dish.
  3. Preheat oven at 350ºC
  4. Sift the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.
  5. On a measuring cup, add the egg and the milk, whisk it until they are combined.
  6. Pour the egg and milk mix over the dry ingredients, whisking constantly and then pour the butter, and whisk until combined.

  8. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. My exact timing was 47 minutes to get the  crispy crunchy top.
