45 | 52 Apple Cardamom Cake

My mom gave me some apples from her garden.
I thought it was only fair to bake them into something delicious. 

And so I did - thanks to this recipe and its very perfect combination of apples, cardamom, and cake.
So snuggle up with a cup of tea and a slice of this goodness and enjoy autumn!

Apple Cardamom Cake

For the filling:
2 apples, peeled, cored & diced
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar

For the cake:
450 g (3 1/3 cups) flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons cardamom
250 g (1 cup plus 2 tablespoons) butter, room temperature
380 g (1 3/4 cups) sugar 
4 eggs
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
250 ml (1 cup) milk
  • In a small bowl, combine apple pieces with cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 175°C (350°F).
  • Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cardamom.
  • Beat butter for about 3 minutes. Add sugar and vanilla. Whisk until light and fluffy.
  • Add one egg at a time, mix well after each addition. 
  • Add flour mix and milk alternatingly.
  • Fill half of a prepared bundt cake mold with batter. Sprinkle with apples. Repeat and top with remaining batter.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes. Let cool and dust with powdered sugar, if you wish.
My modifications:

The taste:
Warm, simple, autumnal, flavorful, comforting, honest, moist, delicious.
