Drowning in utter deliciousness apple cake!

So due to popular demand this recipe is already here...I don't think its easy to make this in India, as I am not sure if some of the ingredients I used will be available. Its flour less, eggless and you just need to mix in the ingredients and you are good to go. Not to mention thats its so delicious and magical, I cant seem to stop baking it!
This recipe is also special because it has been made in Bad Antogast many times, and been served to Guruji also. It was handed over from Danny our fabulous cook at the Berlin centre, perfected by Shailaja Patil..and finally passed over to me. Its also so exclusive that you can't find it anywhere online!

So here are the ingredients

1 pack (200 gms) hazelnut powder (I am sure you can powder almonds in a food processor and get the same results not tried it yet though

1 cup (250 gms) semolina (or suji rawa)

100 grams white butter

2/3 cup sugar (better to use brown sugar or maple syrup (150 ml))

3 grated apples or 2 pureed banana (depending on which fruit flavor you want)

cinnamon powder, 1/2 teaspoon

Baking powder (1 teaspoon)

little bit whole milk to mix.


preheat the over to 180 c for about 5-10 mins. Mix all these ingredients and use a little milk to make it into smooth gooey batter. Line the baking form with baking paper or grease it and coat it with white flour. Pour the batter into the baking form and shove it into the oven, and crank up the heat to 200 c. Bake it for appox 40 mins and until an unbelievable aroma of exquisite cinnamon and nut fills your kitchen. Remove from the oven and let it cool for about 20 mins.
And oh! do remember to invite me for a bite :)

Now that you have become an expert in making sumptuous apple cakes, why don't you try your hand in dishing out more gorgeous and mouth- watering Indian Biryanis ? Nothing can beat the aroma or the taste of the all -special Hyderabadi Biryani (cooked with the best of Basmati Rice, wonderful Masalas and sprinkled with cashews) isn't it ?

Wishing you the best of cooking adventures, be it Indian, Chinese, Continental....!!!
