After my attempt at an upside down cake with pineapple, I wanted to try with apples. This time I didnot use any all purpose flour and did with whole wheat flour and arrow root flour. I usually stock arrow root flour or koova podi in Malayalam during the season(Nov-December), it is available in the market. I use it in baking and whereever corn flour is used in regular cooking. In case u don't have this flour, use corn flour or maida in place of that.
For the cake
- Wheat flour/Atta- 1 cup
- Arrow root/Corn flour - 1/2 cup
- Baking powder - 2 tspn
- Salt - 1/4 tspn
- All spice powder- 1/2 tspn (Mix of cinnamon,nutmeg and cloves)
- Vanilla essence - 1 tspn
- Butter - 1/2 cup
- Sugar- 1/2 cup
- Milk - 1/2 cup
- Flaxseed meal - 1 tblspn mixed in 1 cup of water
- Butter - 2 tblspn
- Brown Sugar - 1/2 cup
- All spice powder - 1/4 tspn
- One applie sliced
Melt sugar and butter in microwave for a minute. Stir in the spice powder.
Seive together the dry ingredients - Wheat flour,arrow root flour, baking powder and salt. I always measure the dry ingredients to an airtight container and shake it well for few times so that the ingredients gets mixed up well.
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
