I’d been asked to make something using Flora Cuisine, a healthier alternative to butter that’s particularly useful for baking, so I headed over to their website for some ideas. I was really impressed by the variety of recipes they had on there.
Doesn’t this Banana Fudge Cake look yummy? In the end though E persuaded me we should make apple cakes together so I dutifully headed of to our local Sainsbury’s to track down some Flora Cuisine which I quickly found along with the butters and spreads. You can find my full photo story here.
The recipe was very straight forward and only had a few ingredients:
115ml Flora Cuisine
115g self raising flour
115g light brown sugar
2tsp ground cinnamon
2 desert apples peeled and chopped
And the method couldn’t be simpler either, just combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, spoon into cupcake cases and bake for 10-12 minutes at 170°c (fan oven). I added some almond buttercream I made by just adding a teaspoon of almond essence to a normal batch of buttercream.
They turned out really well and E was glad to have been able to do most of it himself. What do you think? Pretty hey?
I think this was the best apple cake recipe but if you’d like to get more adventurous I have collected 150 of the Yummiest Apple Recipes into one post to make it easy for you.
