Greer at typically red is continuing her very bloggy morning tea. She's had a wonderful result from fellow bloggers for donations to the Cancer Council and has upped her target which was passed o the first day of blogging.
Have a look. She has been putting up a post each morning focussing on tea, teacups and cake. There have been posts by guest bloggers later in the day and an afternoon post with a recipe . Lots of them sound great to bake, although I would have to wait till family or friends came over or I would have too much.
I wanted to bake this cake but have spent time cleaning baking things, so I'll just post the recipe. This is from my Red Recipe Folder as my sons call it. I have left the imperial measurements but here's a site to convert measurements of all types if you need help. This cake is quite easy and tastes good. A tart apple which doesn't disintegrate on cooking is needed. I prefer a granny smith apple. It's been known in my family as Dutch Apple Cake since Mum first made it. Possibly because of the cinnamon? It goes very well at morning or afternoon tea.
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup sugar
- cup SR flour
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- grated lemon rind
- 1 large cooking apple
Place mix in a small square tin which has been well greased. Use strips of baking paper which overhang the sides of tin to help in removal of cake.
Peel apple and slice. Push slices upright into cake mix and add topping.
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1tablespoon white sugar
- teaspoon cinnamon
- chopped walnuts to taste
Mix this and sprinkle over cake and apple mix.
Bake at 350 ° for 40 minutes and brown under a grill for the last 5 minutes, watching carefully to avoid burning the sugar.
