I get this recipe, Apple cake from Joy of Baking. I like the idea of eating fruits and cake at the same time. Originally it only use apple in this recipe. Since I like the combination of apple and pineapple, I add in both into this cake and become… Apple, pineapple cake :D In order to enhance the fragrant of pineapple, I puree some before add into the batter. I just like the smell of baked pineapple!
I had made some changes to suite my taste.
1 ½ cup cake flour
75g light brown sugar
1 ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp vanilla powder
85g melted margarine (butter)
*mix and set aside.
400g mixture of diced apple, diced pineapple
*I puree some pineapple.
100g mixture of dates and cranberries
1 tbsp flour
*mix and set aside
1. Pour all ingredients (A) into a bowl. Mix well.
2. Add in mixture of eggs and melted margarine. Stir to combine.
3. Before all the flour incorporated, add in mixture of fresh and dried fruits from (C). This time stir till all the ingredients well incorporated. Do not over mix.
4. Pour into 8" lined baking tray. Bake at 180C about 25-28 minutes.
