Apple and Cranberry Cake Topped with Hazelnuts and Pecans
Best HealthOctober 8, 2009
This moist apple cake is ideal for brunch or as a snack. Granny Smith apples are a perfect choice for this recipe because they resist well to baking and are succulent with cranberries. Golden apples are also a good substitute.
Preheat the oven to 180C (350F), and butter a rectangular Pyrex baking dish.
In a bowl, let the cranberries soak in the cider for 30 minutes and set aside.
Mix all the dry ingredients (wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon) in a bowl and set aside.
In a large bowl, use a mixer to whip the butter and the golden yellow sugar until smooth. Add the egg and the ginger. Progressively add the dry ingredients and the yogourt with a wooden spoon until you get a homogenous batter. Add the cranberries, their soaking liquid (cider) and the diced apples. Pour this preparation into a buttered baking dish.
Combine all the garnish ingredients (golden yellow sugar, grated fresh ginger, crushed hazelnuts and pecans) in a bowl. Spread the garnish on the batter and bake for 45 to 50 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.
