This past Tuesday I had a meeting with the Principal of Eli's future middle school. I couldn't go empty handed!
I was reading my Donna Hay magazine
and I came to the chapter "Queen of Cakes". The photos are GORGEEZMO and each and every recipe looked better than the next. I will, ultimately, be making them all. Yet, the cinnamon sugar-coated maple apple cakes jumped out at me.
When the three woman in the meeting took their first bite of their little individual cakes, they moaned! Enough said!
- 2 1/2 cups self-raising flour-sifted
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 250g butter, melted(i used my digital scale)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 4 eggs
- 6 red apples, peeled and grated(i used fuji's)
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon, extra
- 1 cup caster (superfine) sugar
Preheat oven to 355*. Place flour and cinnamon in bowl and mix to combine. Add the butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, eggs and apple and mix well to combine. Spoon into 12 x well greased 1 cup-capacity bundt tins. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer(i baked them about 27 minutes).
Turn out immediately.
Place extra cinnamon and sugar in a bowl and mix to combine. Coat the cakes in the sugar and cool.
p.s I am going to make these again and make them bite size
