Sunday Sup: Apple Cake

Greeting and Salutations! I am vastly hung over this morning. Nothing helps with a hangover like junk food. Of course at the end of the day I still want to feel better not worse so this is moderately healthy junk food. LOL

The original recipe came from my Mother-In-Law. It’s a traditional Dutch plum cake that my hubs grew up eating. I have messed it a round a bit and I change up the fruit routinely depending on what I have in the house that is super ripe. LOL.

Apple Cake

Preheat your oven to 350.

Weigh three large eggs. Do this in grams, makes it easier to be precise.

Add them to a large bowl.

Weigh an equal amount of coconut sugar. Add this to the bowl. Whip for a bit. If you use regular cane sugar the eggs will eventually get fluffy. If you go the coconut sugar route, they will thicken up and whole mess will lighten a shade or two, to a golden brown color.

Weigh an equal amount (to the eggs) of almond flour. (or regular flour). Add to bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of baking powder. Blend.

Add 1 stick (8 tbsp) of melted butter. Blend.

Pour into a 9×13 dish greased with butter.

Add cut fruit to top of the dish. If you use apple slices, just nestle them in together. If you go the plum route, cut the plums in half, remove the stone, and lay the fruit cut side up in the batter. Pears do best when sliced. Anything really big should be sliced. Anything small, apricots would be another example, should be cut in half and laid cut side up.

Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top.

Bake for 35 minutes. The center should still jiggle when you pull the cake out if using almond flour. It will firm slightly as it cools. Regular flour users should not have much jiggle at all when pulling the cake and should reduce time to 30 minutes.
