Since we have embarked on the Bach Flowers series, why not do other series of articles? After all, it inspires me for the next composition and guarantees me enough to write for at least the next few weeks! So I am starting, with or without your approval (but with the boss’s okay!) a new series of healthy recipes – without sugar (or almost.)
Soft Apple Cake
As the title suggests, this is a sugar-free apple cake that should make all your loved ones happy, from 9 months to 99 years old. I just tried it yesterday and it was a national hit. Thanks to this article (and the series that follows!) I should be able to sacrifice my time and energy in the kitchen, all in the name of work! Here are the details of the recipe to apply conscientiously. Eventually, if it is a success, we could integrate it into our next hypothetical AMCC book: Healthy Holistic Recipes. Catchy, no?
300 g flour
240 ml milk
200 g applesauce
80 g oil
1 golden apple
11 g of yeast
zest of a lemon
Preparation: 15 min
Cooking: 45 min
1. Start by preheating the oven to 170 ° C. I guess the idea is that it should take less time to cook. Otherwise, what’s the problem if you don’t heat it before? The cake will be sad that’s it’s a bit cold for a while? Will it lose patience?
2. Mix the applesauce in a bowl. Really you can just put it in the bowl, you only mix with the other ingredients: the flour, baking powder, eggs and oil. You’re supposed to get a homogenous paste – I guess it means you’re not supposed to see flour anymore. Add the milk and stir. Cut the apple in half. In that order.
3. Remove the core of the apple and cut it into small cubes. Place the diced apple and the zest of the lemon in the batter. Mix. Pour the dough into a buttered and floured cake pan.
Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool then unmold. Enjoy your cake warm or cold without sugar. It won’t be sad if you eat it cold, but maybe you will.
By the Way
You can make this recipe with pears instead of apples. You can add nuts or chocolate pieces (without sugar, to stay in the theme).
PS I took a Red Delicious apple, but as you can see in the photo, you couldn’t guess. The advantage of this recipe: my 9 month old baby can eat it!
