Hope all the readers from US had a relaxing Thanksgiving holidays. I was working from home most of the time. Next few weeks will be very busy too.
I had couple of apples that needed immediate attention. I kept on thinking about different things to make with them. But finally I decided to go with this simple bread/cake. I made it on Thursday when we were finding it very hard to step out of home because of cold. I was bored of working and needed a break. The cake came out very delicious. The pecans gave a crunchy topping to the cake. This cake is mildly sweet, just the way I like it.
1 apple peeled and grated (about 1 cup)
1 cup wheat flour
1 tea spn baking powder
1 tea spn vanilla essence
1/8 tea spn salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1 tea spn sugar (any normal sugar will do)
Preheat the oven at 350F for about 10mins.
Mix together butter, brown sugar, egg, essence.
Sieve flour and baking powder. Mix salt. Now add these dry ingredients into butter mixture a little at a time and stir. Add the apple and mix well.
Grease a bread loaf pan. Pour the mixture into the pan. Spread the pecans on top. Sprinkle the sugar.
Bake in the oven at 350F for about 40-45mins or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Serves : 3-4
