A while back my colleague brought to the office a delicious apple cake, a bit different from the usual, with little flour, lots of apple pieces and just the right hint of cinnamon. I asked her for the recipe, which was neither glutenfree, nor eggfree. So I thought: alright. Challenged accepted. *Mission Impossible’s theme playing in the background* (Yes my mind does these things sometimes. Please bear with me).
I’ve made a couple tries, adjusting the doses for the original recipe to those of a free-from one.
So, first things first, pre-heat your oven at 180°C/350 F.
I start by preparing the usual flax-egg (mixing the ground flaxseed with the water and letting it rest 5-10 minutes) and letting the raisins soften in some lukewarm water.
In the meantime I mix the dry ingredients, then squeeze and drain the raisins, mix it with the dry part then add the liquid ingredients, the flaxegg and whisk it all together.
Now it’s time to cut two apples into small and thin pieces and add them to the batter. You can now pour everything in a baking pan (I used a small rectangular one, lined with parchment paper), slice a third apple into thin wedges and use them for the decoration. If you like it that way, that is, if not, give room to your creativity! (something that lacks around here) And sprinkle some pinenuts and brown sugar on top too.
And into the oven it goes. With mine it took more or less 30 minutes to bake. Then let it cool and cut it into squares.
I love them and can’t wait to remake them for my boyfriend, but to make sure they tasted as good as I thought I took a bunch of these squares to my colleague (who luckily enough doens’t suffer from any food intollerance and would always choose “standard” food over free-from) and she loved them too!
Yay! Another not complete fail with my cooking experiments! *high five*
