Fall here in Finland is the time of apples. I looked for my dear apple cook book already in the beginning of the season and have spent many delicious moments looking at the pictures. And not only the pictures but also tasting the cakes I have baked. This recipe is something I want to share. It is definitely the best apple cake ever! You can of course suggest yours! 🙂 Chunky apple slices cover the dough and then you add the coconut-caramel coating. When the whole thing has cooled down, you can decorate it with dark chocolate. As a chocolate lover I almost covered it with chocolate. But you moderate people, just follow the recipe (below the picture) instead! 🙂
Coconut coated apple cake 1 egg 1 cup sugar 2 cups wheat flour 2 tea spoons baking powder 0,75 cup milk (full fat) 100 gr melted butter (let it cool down a bit!) 3 apples Coating 50 gr melted butter 1 cup coconut flakes 4 table spoons cream (38%) 1 cup sugar (I put half of it regular and the other half coconut sugar) 1/2 cup brown syrup For decoration bittersweet chocolate Heat the oven to 200 degrees C. Coat a 22 cm x 28 cm square baking pan (preferably aluminium) with a baking sheet (I used a spring form baking pan). Whip the egg and sugar until fluffy. Mix the baking powder with the wheat flour. Add gradually into the egg-sugar mixture with milk and butter. Peel and cut the apples into slices. Pour half of the dough in the baking pan. Add the apples and the rest of the dough on it. Bake the cake for approx. 15 min. Meanwhile make the coating. Cook all the ingredients for a couple of minutes in a frying pan. Take the cake out and spread the coating on it. Continue to bake for additional 15 min. Cut the cake after it has cooled down. Melt chocolate and decorate the cake with chocolate stripes. Enjoy!
