Eggless Apple Cake - Christmas Special :)

Eggless apple cake1

Christmas is finally here!! :) The holiday mood is up and there is celebration all around :)

Needless to say my house is smelling of cakes and bakes too :)

This time the cake was for the special person of my life too!!!! awwww stop those guesses!! ;)

It was for the birthday boy... no no.. birthday man - Ahem!! Ahem!! My sweetest Dad :)

Christmas and dad's birthday!!! Aren't they enough reasons to bake a yummylicious cake :) :) Yessss!! Indeed it was.

Apple cake was so damn tasty and the additional attraction was the eggless factor :)

Checkout the double celebration apple cake :)

Eggless apple cake

Ingredients:

Apple - 2
Tutti frutti (finely chopped) - 1/4 cup
All purpose flour(Maida) - 2 cups
Butter - 1/2 cup
Powdered sugar - 3/4 cup
Condensed milk - 6 tsp
Baking powder - 2 tsp
Baking soda - 2 tsp
Salt - a pinch

Eggless apple cake6

Method:

Sieve all purpose flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda together and keep it aside.

Powder the clove, cardamom and Cinnamon together.

Melt butter and beat in the powdered sugar until it becomes fluffy. Now add the spice powder and vanilla essence to it and beat it until it mixes evenly.

Peel the skin of the apple and grate it.

Add the grated apple and tutti frutti to the batter and beat it for just a min.

Now add the flour mixture and mix until it gets incorporated and forms a thick batter.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Line a cake tin with parchment paper and grease it. Pour in the batter into the mould and bake in 180°C for 50-60 mins.

Remove from oven and allow the cake to cool on wire rack for a while.

Invert and decorate according to your wish.

Decoration tips:

You can simply place a stencil on top of the cake and sprinkle icing sugar and remove the stencil back carefully.

Sounds simple yet stunning isn't it!!! But I hand made that stencil by cutting out a paper using a knife. ;) ("Now I hear some wooo haaaa's!!! :P)

You can use silver sugar balls to decorate too.

Top with some icing cream.

Note:

Grate the apples and use them. Do not grind it.

Grate it just when you are going to mix it into the batter. Doing it earlier might turn the apple brown.

You can use other fruits like cherries and dates too.

Add finely chopped cashews, almonds, pistachios etc to make it rich.

If you want your cake dark, add two tsps of caramelized sugar to it. It will give a slight bitter kick to the cake :P
