Apple cake with cardamom scented

This weekend was rainy and cold. Watching the ugly day I thought about baking my classic apple crumble .... but had done so many times .... I wanted to something different.

I found that using oil and apples baked the cake would be a more humid, and got it.

As  had left one apple, I used in mashed potatoes and steamed pumpkin I did today. Was very good highly recommended, I used a proportion of half  apple to a kilo  for potatoes. And one  more thing, I like boiling the potatoes with a sprig of fresh rosemary to scent.


  • 3 apples
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder.
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • Two crushed  seeds  cardamom beans

    • For crumble

    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup flour

    Method :

    • Heat the oven at 220 ° C
    • Line a round sprinform. Reserve.
    • Peel the apples and cut into dices
    • In a large skillet melt the tablespoon of butter, put the apples cardamom and molasses. Sauté until  soft. Allow to cool
    • In a bowl sift together the dry ingredients.
    • Mixing the eggs with the oil and apples and mix with the dry ingredients
    • Place the mixture in mold Spread the crumble on top and bake for 35-40 minutes.

    • Makes 8 servings
