my head hurts - no sympathy deserved however, all self inflicted.
brain not quite functioning, so attempting to write a recipe may be a bad idea, if it is a total disaster please forgive me. you might think as I have more than one or two recipe books it would just be a case of copying something, but I made this recipe up, so we'll have to hope for the best...
Spicy apple cake
60z flour (I used doves farm gluten free but use anything.. or even self raising and miss out the baking powder)
6oz sugar - golden granulated is my fave
60z butter (or marg, or dairy free margarine)
2 teaspoon baking powder (maybe less if not using nasty gf flour...)
mix all of these ingredients with a hand held blender, kitchen aid, wooden spoon....
grease and line cake tins - I used 2 7inch sandwich tins, but you could make it one deeper tin, and just cook it for longer.
spoon mixture into tins.
peel and core 2 or 3 eating apples, and slice into segments approx 1cm thick
arrange on top of cake mix in tin in a single layer.
mix 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and a couple of teaspoons of muscavado (dark brown) sugar, and sprinkle this liberally all over the apple slices.
bake at 180 C for 25 - 35 minutes, till cake springs back when prodded and a fork/cake tester inserted into the middle comes out clean.
cool slightly and serve warm with some cream or cold with a cup of tea, or even for breakfast (well it's got fruit in it so I reckon that makes it healthy)
don't think recipe writing is my strong point, I may not take it up as a career...
this is part of a valentines decoration I made after finding the new bead shop, seed beads and red hearts strung on fishing line, and hung in the window. (totally impossible to photograph in the window - believe me I tried)
and my new necklace, a pink and white bead, on pink soft leather.
Miss K thought it might be for her!
