The other morning I was having a client to the house and when I have anyone over I have to feed them. This time I was very short on time so I had to work with what I had on hand and what was quick. I found this recipe a few days earlier and it was perfect! However I have to admit I made a couple changes, 1 by accident but it worked out great!
1 1/2 cups flour total, equal parts white and whole wheat, sifted
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter flavored vegetable shortening, melted (its what I had on hand, regular shortening or butter would work)
1 1/2 cup chopped apples (two large apples)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour total, equal parts white and whole wheat
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 400 degree and grease liberally with butter an 8 x 8 pan, set aside. Now sifte together all dry ingedients in a large bowl, set aside. Now mix all the wet ingredients in a seperate small bowl. Add the wet to the dry and mix thoroughly. Then add in the apples and stir to combine. Pour everthing into the greased pan.
Make the topping by blending everything together with your fingers or use a pasty blender. I don’t own a pastry blender but my fingers worked fine and quick. (I also used my hands to mix the batter! I was in a rush and they work the best).
Sprinkle the topping over the batter and bake for about 25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
Now here are the differances; the original recipe called for only 1/2 cup milk. When I was mixing it I noticed that it was a little too dry for me, very dry to be honest so I added another 1/2 cup of milk and it had a more doughy consistency. Also, I was in such a rush I forgot to add the 1/2 cup sugar to the cake batter! I did not realize this until after it came out of the oven. On the fly, while the cake was still hot I drizzled some light Agave nectar I had on hand all over the cake, about 1/4 – 1/3 cup. This soaked in while it was still hot, added to the moisture of the cake and left a wonderfully sweet but not too sweet taste.
Over all it was a hit and I was able to put it together in under 10 minutes! Plus its a recipe that can stand a mistake or 2! Thank you REC(ession)IPES for the recipe.
