Urgh, February is being a drag already isn't it? It has become comfort food central for me, after the healthy eating of January goes out of the window. I love warm desserts in the winter and there is nothing better than the combination of apple & cinnamon.
When I was asked by Baking Mad to try out a recipe of theirs, I toyed with some cupcake recipes but instead decided that a nice stodgy cake was what I was in the mood for so looked at the cake recipes and found this recipe for Bramley Apple Cake. It's a really easy tray bake that was yummy straight from the cake tin or even better the day after covered in loads of custard.
The recipe itself was really easy - just throw everything into the bowl and mix! The most fiddly part was preparing the apples. I didn't have any bramley apples so just made do with some cox's I had lurking in the fridge waiting to be used. I am sure it will be even more delicious with bramley apple's and some cinnamon mixed in with the sugar sprinkled on top.
1 tbsp lemon juice
225g butter, softened
350g self raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
225 golden caster sugar
Demerara sugar to sprinkle
There are so many yummy recipes on the Baking Mad website that I want to try now, including the key lime cupcakes recipe, yum. There is also currently a competition on the website to win a gorgeous Kenwood stand mixer!
