This is the perfect word to describe this cake!! The cake is so delicious, moist, soft and dense packed with fresh, juicy apples making it a perfect treat for your taste buds.
The traditional apple cakes are made with cinnamon and nutmeg. There is a heavenly combination between apple and cinnamon. Your kitchen will be filled with rich aroma when you are baking this cake!!
Normally, apple has a tendency to make any cake moist. Imagine a cake made out of apples!! Extremely mouth-watering, right!! This cake is so soft and moist that it will melt in your mouth.
I have made this cake using wheat flour ( pillsbury atta). You can always substitute it with all-purpose flour. I normally use wheat flour as I do not want to use all-purpose flour much. There is no difference in the cake but definitely wheat flour gives it’s own taste and color to the cake. Same goes with all-purpose flour. Otherwise the recipe is same for both.
One thing to keep in mind is when wheat flour added in a recipe, the cake batter becomes thick and results in a moist, dense cake. This is because wheat flour has high protein content and it absorbs more water. If you feel, you can’t handle with thick batter add 4 tbsp of milk extra.
Coming to the apples, you can slice them in a shape as you wish. The skin can always be removed if you wish to. I wanted it to be with skin on as it is more healthy that way.
I normally like to use oil to bake any cake. Using oil makes a cake moist. As this is a apple cake and apple can make any cake moist, I wanted to try it out with melted butter and it worked very well. Both light brown sugar and dark brown sugar can be used. Baking a cake with brown sugar gives good result.
I think, I have explained well so far. Let us check the recipe of heavenly, delicious Apple cake🍎🎂❤
