Eggless Apple Cinnamon Spiced Cake

This cake is one such that screams” CHRISTMAS”. I don’t know from when, but always the fragrance or aroma of cinnamon in baked goods is Christmas to me. Maybe the warm earthy flavour of cinnamon wafting through bakery stuff reminds my inner soul of cold snowy winters dotted with greens and reds. This cake for sure will invite one for a second serve so do try it.

All Purpose Flour-1 & ¾ cups
Apple (peeled& Cubed)-1 cup
Condensed Milk-200 ml
Sugar-1/2 cup
Butter-1/2 cup
Baking Powder-1 tsp
Baking Soda-1/2 tsp
Warm Milk-1/2 cup
Oil-2 tbsp
Apple Cider Vinegar-1 tbsp
Cinnamon powder-1 tsp
How It Happened:
1. Wash and peel the apple, and cube them into pieces. Preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius for 10 minutes.
2. In a bowl sieve in the baking powder, baking soda and all purpose flour and set aside.
3. Take another bowl; add the condensed milk, sugar, oil, warm milk and butter and beat well until all ingredients are mixed and creamed well.
4. Add the all purpose flour mix into the wet mix slowly part by part and keep mixing to make a smooth mix without lumps.

5. Finally add the apple cider vinegar and mix once and pour into the prepared (greased and dusted-notes) 9 inches cake tin.
6. Bake at 180 degree Celsius for 55-60 minutes or when the inserted skewer comes out clean switch off the oven.
7. Let it cool in the wire rack, remove from the tin and cut into slices and enjoy.
* Green apples can also be used if you like a little tarty cake!
* Do not keep the batter for too long in the cake tin before baking else the raising of the cake will be affected which in turn will result in a chewy dense cake.
* Apple cider vinegar helps in making the cake light and soft. Instead you can also use ¼ cup of thick unsour curd.

* The baking time slightly differs based on the oven. Mine was done exactly by 55 minutes. So starting checking after 50 minutes.
* I prepare the cake tin by brushing it with a blob of butter and then dusting it with all purpose flour. Tap the tin to remove any extra flour.
* If you find the batter to be very thick then you can add a little warm milk and liquefy the consistency.

* Vanilla essence can be added, but i didn’t add any as I want the flavours of apples and cinnamon to shine.
