Eggless Apple Cake

I wanted to try out the Banana muffins that we did in my baking class after seeing the post from Radhika, followed it and landed at Madhuram's eggless cooking site. Saw the Vegan Cocoa Apple Cake Recipe and A is going through the "I don't want Banana. .I want apple" line decided to make apple cake.

I did not want to use cocoa and have stuck with All Purpose flour so here is my version of it.

You Need:

All Purpose flour - 1.5 cups
Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Salt - 0.5 tsp
Powdered Sugar - 0.75 cup
Water - 1 cup
Apple Puree - 0.25 cup
Peeled, cored and diced apple - 0.75 cup
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
Lemon Juice Freshly squeezed - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp ( used refined cooking oil)

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F
Lightly grease and line the cake tin with parchment paper
Sift the flour, soda and salt
Mix in the powdered sugar ensuring there are no lumps
In another bowl, mix the apple puree, water, vanilla extract, lemon juice and oil
Pour this onto the dry ingredients
Mix gently
Fold in the diced apple
Pour into the greased tin
Bake for ~ 40 mins or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean
Take the tin out of the oven and allow it to rest for about 20 mins
Remove the cake from the tin and allow it it rest on the wire rack for another 30 mins

We finished off half of the cake as soon as the waiting period was over. It was soft, moist in the centre and yummmmmm

The other half which we had in the evening tasted better. Lesson Learnt - This cake tastes better if you eat it 4 - 5 hrs after it has been made :)

I am sending this to Bake fest 2 hosted by Sangee (initially started by Vardhini), to New Year New Dish hosted by Nupur and Serve - it series by Krithi (& Denny)
