Fresh Apple Cake Pudding

I love leisurely Sunday mornings...when the toddler sleep way past his usual wake-up time and the hubby is ravenous BUT undemanding :D. Ah! what a perfect morning! Today was one such lucky day. We sat up late last night watching a recent Bollywood release and so it was a late and lazy morning.

After a quick breakfast i decided to make an apple upside down cake, just so to be done with one sour apple that has been sitting on my fruit basket and showing signs of ill health :). As the cake was baking, my dear hubby requested i make some Custard as he was in a 'something sweet khane ka maan', so i had to make some custard as well.

Once the cake and custard was done, i served the man, the pudding and the man lived happily ever after :) How i wish happily ever after were that simple..Aye??? Here's the recipe for the Fresh Apple Cake.

1 - Apple Sliced Evenly Thin
1 - Egg
1 Cup - All Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup + 1 Tbsp - Sugar  (1/2 Brown + 1 Tbsp White)
3/4 Tsp - Baking Soda
1/2 Cup - Veg' Oil
1 Tsp - Vanilla Essence
5-6 Tbsp - Milk
A pinch - Salt

This cake is very easy like most cake i bake :). We enjoyed it thoroughly and i'm sure you will too. This is how it's done.

  1. Preheat @ 180 degrees
  2. Lay the apple slices on the baking pan in rows of three (if using a square baking pan) ans sprinkle some brown sugar over it
  3. Sieve the flour, baking soda and salt together and keep aside
  4. In another bowl mix the veg' oil and sugar till well combined, add the egg and the vanilla essence till it well blended
  5. Pour the wet over the dry and mix well
  6. Add the Milk a Tbsp at a time to thin the batter
  7. Pour it over the prepared baking pan, give it a good shake from side to side to ensure even coating 
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes
  9. Let cool for 5-10 minutes

Make the vanilla custard according to packet instruction. Dunk the Apple Cake on top and serve warm. This truly is a happy pudding for happy people...truly yummilicious :).

Happy Weekend!!
