Apple Cake

Hey guys!!! I am back with another cake recipe. I wanted to try this delicious cake since a long time. It is a saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away but if the doctor is sweet then keep the apple away” well my father is a doctor so he basically hammered into me the habit of having an apple everyday. This cake is simple to make and so delicious you wont be able to stop at one bite. Try it out and have it warm with tea/coffee and just sit back on your favorite chair and enjoy the moments with your cake.

For Sauce:

In a heavy bottom non stick pan take the sugar and let it melt on slow flame. Once it starts melting take it off the gas and add the butter, cream and milk and mix properly. The flame should be constantly on low so that the sugar does not burn. Take of the flame and mix for sometime till it cools down to room temperature. you can store this sauce for upto a month in an air tight bottle in fridge.

7) Dust round cake tin (9-11 inch) using flour and pour the batter in the tin. now bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes at 180 degrees. Take care that the batter should not be more than half of the height of the tin. The batter should be half of the tin or less then half only then it will have space to rise properly.
