Love cakes? Love to bake and eat? Love apples? Then it is time to bake the perfect apple cake. Even if you don’t like to eat apples, you will end up eating the cake for sure.
Apple Cake with Cinnamon is a classic coffee cake that looks great, tastes great and gives a good nutritional boost. I wonder if there is any other cake which is so delicious, healthy, wholesome and yummy at the same time. An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but a slice of an apple cake will definitely keep those blues away. The first time I tried making the apple cake, I was very skeptical of using apples in it and wondered about the final outcome. As the baking life went by, this cake reigns for it fills the stomach, satisfies the sweet-something craving, renders a spicy taste in the mouth, and gives the wholesome goodness of having eaten the right stuff instead of indulging in not-so healthy baked options. I just love the heady scent of the apple cake with cinnamon being baked.
Here is the Standard Recipie for Apple Cake with Cinnamon Notes. I have my baking notes at the end of the recipie where I have introduced variations and made this cake tastier and healthier.
Here is a standard way of making a good soft banana cake. Below the recipie are the tips and tricks for a healthier cake.
You can either mash the bananas to pulp or cut them into small pieces – depends on how you like your bite to be 🙂
Wholewheat flour is a better alternative to refined flour. Good for growing children, especially those who are fussy about eating.
It is a good idea to reduce the sugar as much as possible for ripe bananas bring in the much needed sweetness.
Reduce the quantity of butter and oil. Though these are essential to ensure the texture and moistness, the cake is still tasty.
Try folding the two mixures in form of “8” figure to ensure that more air is trapped inside while mixing. This gives a wonderful texture to the cake, cooks well inside and helps in keeping it fluffy.
2 big potatoes

Fry on high flame till done.
50 grams bittersweet/ semisweet chocolate bits/ flakes/ pieces
1 tablespoon brewed coffee
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups granulated white sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup sour cream
1/3 cup milk
How to make the delicious marble cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Melt the semisweet chocolate with coffee.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon. Keep this aside.
To the butter, add sugar, eggs, vanilla and sour cream.
Lastly add the flour mixture.
With the mixer on low speed alternately add the flour mixture and the milk to the batter, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour.
Divide your batter into two halves. In the first one goes the melted chocolate. The other one remains as it. In your baking dish, spoon the two different batters alternatively.
Swirl your spoon lightly in the batter to form marble silk like patterns within. Dont over do this.
Bake for about 50 – 60 minutes, or until the toothpick/ knife comes out clean.
Remove, cool and drool.
