SFizzle I apologise but this is not for you and your cinnamon-deprived taste buds.
I discovered this recipe on Chelsea’s Messy Apron and it already had oat flour which was very exciting, as you can imagine.
I’ve gotten in the habit of only ever eating apples with cinnamon – simply because it is more fun and I like cinnamon very much. Also it makes the apples browner so they look more like me.
So I figured why not make a cake out of it. A beautiful brown cake.
Now to start off this called for applesauce. I’ve been very confused about this in the past, with google giving me conflicting instructions. Do you simply but apples in a blender, or cook it with water, or cook it with water and sugar, or blend it then cook it…What’s it supposed to look like and feel like, no one ever told me! So I have concocted my own recipe that involves apples and looks like a sauce therefore a reasonable conclusion to come to would be to deem it applesauce.
- Slice 4 apples to whatever size you want them to be in the cake. Blend it if you don’t want any pieces.
- Add 3 tbs honey and ½ tbs lemon juice (the concentrated stuff…we don’t buy lemons. I imagine one would need more than ½ tbs if using real lemons)
- Add 2 tsp cornstarch and let it cook and get sauce-like
- Sprinkle some nutmeg and add 1-3 tsp cinnamon depending on your name, age and hair colour.
- The apples should now taste delicious and so it must be ready.
- Mix applesauce with ¼ cup coconut oil – I know it starts off solid for you guys because you live in strange climates but use it anyway! Tis a wonderful wonderful thing.
- Mix in 1 egg, 1 tsp vanilla and honey to taste. I used 5 tbs but this does depend on the kind of honey you’re using.
- Now add the dry ingredients:
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- More nutmeg
- And more cinnamon
The recipe says 30-35 mins at 175, I put it for 20 mins at 180.
It’s very very soft and a bit crumbly so I would fridge it for a while first. Deliciousness is directly proportional to the amount of cinnamon you use. I used a lot.
