Italian Apple Cake – by Christian Molinari

posted in: RECIPES 0
  What a handsome looking cake this is – so moist and darned moorish. My friend and pastry chef Christian kindly gave me the recipe for the above – it’s not complicated and as long as you follow the instructions to the letter, you can’t go wrong. It’s as light as as a feather. Buon appetitio.
5 cooking apples
120gr plain flour
100gr butter
300gr white sugar
3 eggs
1/2 litre of milk
1 lemon
50gr pine nuts
16gr baking powder
a little sugar for sprinkling
pinch of cinnamon powder
 Pre heat the oven to 200oC.
Melt the butter in the microwave. Add the sugar and the eggs and beat with a whisk. Add the flour and baking powder and fold in to incorporate.
Peel, core and cut up the apples and pour over the juice of a lemon to prevent discolouration. Stir in the milk, pine nuts and finally add the chopped apples.
Grease a cake tin and line it with grease proof paper. Pour in the mixture, place on the bottom shelf in the oven for thirty minutes, remove and sprinkle on the sugar and cinnamon powder and bake for a further fifteen minutes.
