1/2 Red Apple,cut into slices along with the peel

Method:
  • Grease an 8"square tin with butter/oil and dust it with flour or you can line a parchment paper in the tin.
  • Sift flour with baking powder,baking soda,salt and cinnamon powder.
  • Separate egg whites and egg yolks.Beat egg whites with a pinch of salt and vanilla essence till stiff.Add sugar in batches and beat well after each addition.
  • Put egg yolk one at a time.Beat well.
  • Add oil and beat for half a minute.
  • Add flour gradually and fold gently with a large wooden spoon.
  • Fold 1 cup apples and chopped walnuts(dust the walnuts with flour before adding) into the batter.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared tin and evenly arrange the remaining apple slices on the batter.
  • Mix a 1 tbsp of brown sugar with 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder and 1 tsp melted powder in a bowl and sprinkle this mixture on the arranged apples in the tin.
  • Bake in pre-heated oven at 170 deg C/300 deg F for 35-40 mins.Insert a skewer in the center to check the doneness of the cake.If it comes out clean,remove from oven.
  • Let it cool and invert on a rack and cut into pieces and serve.
You can serve a warm/cold custard sprinkled with the cinnamon powder along with the cake.

Notes:
  1. You can bake this in two small loaf tins or 1 big loaf tin too.
  2. Walnuts add a nice bite in the cake,so do not miss it.
  3. The cup I used in the recipe is 1 cup = 200ml.
