Recipe of the week

Mega muffin apple cake


Alexia's Dad Massimo has been busy baking today! We thought we would share one of his recipes with you!



Ingredients:

250g all purpose flour

120g sugar

pinch of salt

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

2 eggs

milk (enough to hold the mix together)

20g melted butter

150 g raisins

8 pink lady apples

a small amount of water and rum mixed together (enough to cover the raisins)

 

Preheat the oven to 180º

You will need a cake tin with a removable bottom. Line the bottom with baking paper and grease the edges.

 

In a small dish place the raisins and cover with a mixture of rum and water, leave them to soak for 30 minutes.

Sieve the flour, salt, baking power and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl. Mix in the melted butter and eggs and then add enough milk to ensure the mixture can drop off the spoon.

Peel the 8 apples (the more the better), slice 7 and grate 1  and add these to the mixture.

Mix in the raisins.

 

Pour the cake mix into the tin, sprinkle a little sugar on top before baking.

Bake in the oven for 45-60 minutes depending on oven.

Once done, go around the edges of the cake with a knife, leave for 5 minutes and remove from the tin.

 

Best served with ice cream.


Have a fabulous weekend!
