One of the vows I made to myself was that I would bake more often in 2017, atleast once a week. But then nearly a month has gone by and finally I got around to baking.
I spotted a lone apple in the fridge and since it is one of my favourite fruits, I jumped at the chance to make something with it. I had bookmarked a recipe online for a simple apple cake and got down to making it today.
Apple & cinnamon combination has been one of my favourites for as long as I can remember. I love a good hot apple pie, alas there are very few places that make it well. Luckily, this recipe had ingredients [I did tweak it a bit] that I knew could be found in my kitchen which gave me the motivation I needed to get on with it.
I usually pick out all the necessary ingredients, place them on the counter top, clean out the bowls, spoons and measuring equipment before I start. I did the same today, only thing I hadn’t done was peel and slice the apples. I did not forget, but deliberately put it off for the last minute- apples tend to go brown when sliced, remember?!
