Apple in love : รักน้องเปิ้ล

I have many recipes of apple cake and I find all of them are great. Anyway, I used to bake this one most frequently. I love the moist and fluffy of the cake, the taste that not too sweet and also the wonderful aroma of apple, cinnamon and rum. If you like apple cake, you shouldn't miss to try this recipe.

Ingredients :
  • 200g apples (peeled, cored and coarsely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2-3 drops rum-aroma
  • 100g butter
  • 90g sugar (A)
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 110g cake flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 60 ml milk
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 20g sugar (B)
Instructions :
  • Combine apples, lemon juice, ground cinnamon and rum-aroma together, set aside. Then mix together the cake flour and baking powder, two times sifting and set aside. Grease the muffin pan lightly with butter. Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  • Whisk the butter by using an electric hand whisk until smooth, then gradually add in sugar(A) and whisk until the butter is creamy and fluffy. Add egg yolks all at once and vanilla extract to the creamy butter and whisk until incorporated.
  • Divide the flour into 4 equal parts and divide milk into 3 equal parts. Then stir the flour alternatively with milk in the butter mixture just until incorporated, stop stirring.
  • In another mixing bowl, beat the egg whites with salt until foamy. Gradually add in sugar and whisk with high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the foamy egg whites into the mixture. Finally, stir in apples.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan. Lay an apple piece which cut in heart shape on the top. Place the muffin pan in the middle of oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes. Take it out from the oven and rest in the pan about 5 minutes before remove from the pan and place on a wire rack to cool.
