It has been a long time since I baked any cake. Though V loves cakes, I hardly bake them anymore due to my busy schedule. All I am managing is to prepare some day to day food.
Now, there were two reasons to even attempt this cake. One, we had a big batch of apples at home, which needed my immediate attention. Two, V was not keeping very well and he wanted to eat some cake. I thought of making this to cheer him up.
My last few experiments with apple cake did not go very well. I wanted to make eggless apple cake(because I am sure that will be the first question from readers when I post this). We both don’t like dense cakes and the eggless cakes almost always turned out a bit dense. So this time, I didn’t even attempt to make it eggless.
This cake came out pluffy and delicious. It tasted even better the next day. I am posting this here so that I can make this more frequently. The quantity of raisins can be increased by another 1/4 cup.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup vegetable oil
1 tea spn vanilla extract
1/4 cup raisins
1 and 1/2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 and 1/2 tea spns baking powder
Preheat the oven to 350F(approx 175C) for about 10mins.
Cut the apple into small pieces and grind to a paste (do not peel them). To help in grinding, add the oil.
Take apple paste in a big bowl and add sugar. Add vanilla extract, mix. Mix till it forms a uniform mixture. Add eggs mixing all the time.
Sieve together baking powder and all purpose flour. Add little flour mixture at a time to apple mixture, mixing it all the time. Add the raisins and mix gently.
Grease a oven proof dish and pour in the cake batter.
Bake for about 45-50mins or till the cake it done.
