Hi there– When I came upon this recipe, it really caught my eye– chunky apples popping out all over and it’s flavored by rum instead of the usual cinnamon. This little cake has more apples than batter, so it’s almost like eating apple pie– in a cake! (does that possibly make sense?)
Anyway, We had it with friends and mugs of coffee on an evening las week. I think you might like it at one of your meals with family and friends ahead…
RUM APPLE CAKE
4 medium apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1″ chunks
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup sugar
3 tab. light rum
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup canola oil
powdered sugar for dusting
Peel & core the apples and cut them into nice large 1″ chunks
In a mixing bowl, stir up the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Then mix in the eggs rum, vanilla, and oil. Finally fold in the apples.
Spoon the batter into an 8″ cake pan* spray with cooking spray. Bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes, until the cake is a pretty brown and the apples are tender.
When it’s cooled, dust the top with powdered sugar through a sieve. Enjoy!
*I used a springform pan to be able to remove the cake easier.
