Apple Sweet Cake
I love to bake and have not been baking very much, recently. Here is an apple cake,we love to eat. I hope you like apples.
I am a big fan of King Arthur's Flour recipes. They seem to be the results of trial and error. Every one, I have made, has been a success.
Fortunately, there are many phenomenal sounding recipes online on King Arthur's Flour site and I have their baking cookbook. I am sure, I will continue to find good, solid recipes to fill our tummies.
This cake was very good. Although the apples were only on the top, the top was almost covered from one side to the other so every bite brought a piece of apple with it.
Apple Sweet Cake (adapted from King Arthur's Flour recipes)
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup sugar
2 cups gluten-free flour mixture
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup Rice Dream
1/2 cup sour cream
3 1/2 cups apples, peeled, cored and sliced
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon (I put a little more than a teaspoon in with the sugar but I did not measure. I always add additional cinnamon. I love the flavor.)
Preheat oven to 350-degrees F.
In a mixing bowl cream margarine and sugar together until thick and lemon colored.
Add eggs, beating until light.
In a seperate bowl sift flour with baking powder and salt.
Add dry ingredients alternately to the batter with the sour cream and milk, beating until batter is smooth.
Pour batter into a greased 9 x 12-inch pan.
Insert apple slices so that the outer edges are up.
In a small cup combine remaining 2 tablespoons sugar with cinnamon.
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over top of apples.
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
