Apples!

Apple Cake

Our little apple tree is loaded this year, so we are bringing back all the good old traditional apple recipes:

Apple Juice: Very small apples and some of those that have fallen off the tree go right into the juicer after some washing and coring.

Apple Sauce: As an alternative to the juice some apples get processed into apple sauce. They are peeled, cored, boiled and then put through a strainer.

Apple Cake:
500g flour (I used whole wheat this time)
2 tsp dried yeast
75g sugar
1 pkt vanilla sugar
salt
250 ml lukewarm milk
75-100 g melted, cooled butter

Add flour and yeast in mixing bowl and mix carefully. Then add the other ingredients.

Mix the ingredients with an electric mixer at a low setting first, then knead for 5 min. Cover dough and leave to rise in warm place. Remove the dough when well risen and knead on the work surface.
I actually used our breadmaker in the dough cycle for the mixing and rising.

Roll out dough on greased baking sheet. Place apple slices on top. Bake at 225 C (437F) for 15-20 minutes.
