Apple cake - 11/12/10

This cake is so easy to make!  it is probably one of the easiest dessert I have made in a long time. Almost too easy, in fact. Itís so easy you could throw it together in about 15 minutes on a weeknight and have a delectable dessert in just over an hour.  What I really loved about this cake is the that there were a lot more apples than batter. The batter just serves as a means of bonding the all apples pieces together.  The inside of cake taste almost like a pudding, very soft and so yummy!

The cake is moist and can be served with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. It is also good as it is for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee, a great way to start your day!

Close look at the cake.

The rum-and-vanilla-scented batter is less cakey than custardy. And thereís only enough of it to surround the apples. Itís a very homey, almost rustic cake and itís good no matter what kinds of apples you use. 

Preparation work..

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt

and the remaining butter, mixing gently after each addition so that you have a smooth, rather thick batter..
