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.  

Makes 12


p.s I am going to make these again and make them bite size
