Apple cake with oatflour

Apple cake with oatmeal
More and more often looking for how a recipe can be baked a little healthier, but still tasty. No, I'm not going to completely skip sugar and fats, but it can sometimes be a little less, right? Baking with apple is always a good idea, the ideal friend when baking. This apple cake with oatmeal is a sheet cake and is ready fairly quickly in the oven. After half an hour of baking, the apple would not be ready, so I caramelized the apples in the pan with a pinch of sugar and cinnamon before baking. This gives the apple a great tasty taste. In addition, the apples ensure that the cake tastes nice and fresh and gives more variation when tasting than just cake.

Make cloud cake

This recipe contains whipped cream and is a variation of the cloud cake. A cloud cake is a cake baked with whipped cream instead of butter. That is ideal because it contains much less fat and is very handy to stock in packs in the pantry. In addition, butter is quite pricey these days, making it a cheaper choice.

Baking cake without butter but with other, sometimes nutritious, ingredients

You bake cakes with butter, right? Yes, that's how we almost all learned it. But you can also bake cake with other ingredients instead of butter. Not that there's anything against butter; it's delicious and you bake the most delicious cakes. But butter is also very fatty and nowadays it is quite pricey. In addition, there are other ingredients that can replace butter and are sometimes also nutritious; such as tofu, Hüttenkäse, yoghurt or fresh applesauce.

  10. 2 apples in pieces with a pinch of sugar, cinnamon and a knob of (vegetable) butter

  11. 20 x 20 cm baking tin

This is how you bake this stuffed apple cake with oatmeal

  1. Peel the apples and cut them into pieces. Melt a small knob of butter in a pan and fry the apples on a medium heat. After a few minutes, a spoonful of sugar may be added. Let it fry and caramelize for a while. When the apples soften a bit and lose some moisture, add the cinnamon and turn off the fire. Let the apples cool.

  2. Line the baking tin with baking paper or grease it with butter and dust it lightly with flour.

  3. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees for a convection oven or to 190 degrees for an oven with top and bottom heat.

  4. Whip the whipped cream with half of the (light brown) sugar until stiff and set aside.

  5. Beat the eggs until light.

  6. Mix the syrup, the rest of the sugar, the salt, the flour, baking powder and the ground and coarse oatmeal briefly until mixed, but no longer.

  7. Finally, fold the whipped cream into the batter. Do this carefully so as not to lose air and for no longer than necessary.

  8. Divide half of the batter into the baking tin. Divide the apples over this followed by the rest of the batter.

  9. Divide some coarse oatmeal over the top and possibly another teaspoon of sugar. Bake the cake in the oven for about 30 minutes until golden brown and done.

  10. Are you going to decorate the cake? Melt 30 grams of white chocolate in small pieces in the microwave. Do this in rounds of about 15-20 seconds. White chocolate can burn and by heating it briefly you can keep an eye on it. Draw stripes over the cake with a teaspoon; these are drizzle stripes.

  11. The cake becomes extra beautiful with a piece of freeze-dried fruit, chocolate sprinkles or other sprinkles of your choice. But a dusting of icing sugar before serving also works wonders.

Plate cake filled with caramelized apples.

Freeze-dried apple, raspberries and blueberries

Unfortunately I didn't have any freeze-dried or homemade dried apple at home. That is actually just a little more suitable for this cake. You can immediately see what's inside. But the eye also wants something, so the colored, dried fruity friends were taken out of the closet. In a natural way, a cake immediately has more color.
