Day Twenty Three."If I knew your were coming...

...I'd have baked a cake, baked a cake..."

Well I DID bake a cake, a sugar free one, and will gladly share the recipe with you.
Just before you think this is a 'too big a job', I can assure you, this is a very easy cake to make!
... and... the sugar free recipe doesn't stop sugar lovers from enjoying this cake.
Corina's (Sugar Free) Apple Cake.

  • 8 ounces white flour *
  • 2 teasp. baking powder
  • 2 teasp. speculaas kruid (which is a Dutch mixed cookie spice)- or a mixed cookie-spice
  • 3 to 4 ounces of butter or margarine
  • 4 ounces of sultanas
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of apple concentrate. (equivalent of 3 ounces of sugar)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup soyamilk, or ricedream (or cows milk if you prefer)
  • 2 apples cut into small pieces

( *you can also use gluten free flour, but in this case increase the amount of baking powder to 2 and 1/2 teaspoon and add more liquid)

  • Sieve flour and, baking powder, and spice into mixer bowl
  • add butter/margarine and mix until the consistency resembles course cornmeal
  • by hand: mix in (sugar), raisins, apple
  • mix egg with half the milk, and add the apple concentrate
  • mix this with dry ingredients to create a wet-tish dough that easily falls of the knife
  • put into greased and floured 2lb loaf tin and level on top.
  • bake in centre of oven 350-375F or gas 4, for 1 hour.
  • Eat and enjoy!
