Hi all of you friends and welcome to the Giallozafferano kitchen. Today we’ll be making together one of the most common homemade desserts: the rustic apple cake. Quick and easy to prepare, it’s perfect for breakfast or for your kids’ snack. But let’s see together what ingredients we’ll need:
• 1,5 lbs (700 g) of apples (I’ve chosen the Golden, but you can use your favourite)
• 3,5 oz (100 g) of butter
• 2 medium eggs
• 1 level tsp of cinnamon powder
• 1 sachet of baking powder
• 1 sachet of vanilla powder
• 1 cup (200 g) of sugar • just over 1 ½ cup (200 g) of flour
• powdered vanilla sugar to sprinkle the cake
• 1 pinch of salt
• the grated zest and the juice of 1 organic lemon (grated zest + juice)
• less than 1 cup (200 ml) of fresh whole milk
Let’s make together the rustic apple cake!
First of all, peel the apples, remove the core, cut them into quarters, then slice them across the narrow side. Now put all the slices in a bowl… and add the grated zest and the juice of an organic lemon. Mix everything so that the apples can rest without turning brown.
In the bowl of a mixer, put the softened butter, the sugar, the cinnamon, the eggs and the milk. Let it run until you have a smooth and even mixture; you could also use a whisk or a beater, but sometimes the butter goes lumpy, while in this way it won’t happen.
After pouring the mixture into a bowl, add all together the sifted flour, the baking powder, the vanilla and the salt and blend everything: as you can see, now I have a rather thick dough. At this point, add the apples to the dough. Mix everything to blend well.
After blending all the ingredients, pour them into a 9-inch cake pan, greased with butter and flour. Then bake the cake at 350°F for 50-60 minutes.
50-60 min. — 350°F (180°C)
When the cake is cooked, let it cool down completely, then sprinkle with powdered sugar, and it’s ready to be tasted! From Sonia and GialloZafferano, bye and see you next video recipe.
