The sad, neglected apples sitting unloved in the fruit bowl were never going to get eaten. They looked so shiny, so full of hope in the greengrocers. By the time they had completed the journey home and been relegated to the big purple ceramic fruit bowl they had begun to lose their lustre. A cake would turn these lovelies into something befitting their sweet taste.I peeled and diced three apples then stewed them with some butter, water, sugar and cinnamon until they were golden, sticky and rather delicious. Then I followed the recipe I found on bestrecipes.com.au for ‘easy apple cake’. The link is here if you’d like to view it: http://www.bestrecipes.com.au/recipe/easy-apple-cake-L2681.html
This cake is gorgeous for morning tea and if you wanted to take it up a notch you could serve it with some double cream.
