Eggless Apple Cake ( A Cake A Week. #2 )

This week I baked an eggless apple cake following yet again a recipe from Madhuram's Eggless Cooking. As always her instructions were flawless. but this time I felt that the cake would taste slightly more moist with an extra helping of fat or oil substitute. so i modified the recipe accordingly. 

now the picture and the recipe.

  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of small pieces of apples
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder
what i did

  • i preheated the oven to 350 degree F, lightly greased and floured a 9x1.5 inch circular cake pan.
  • For the cake batter, I began by sifting all the dry ingredients together and keeping the mixture aside. 
  • next in a microwave safe big enough container, i put the butter and sugar and microwaved it for 30 seconds till the butter was soft. then adding applesauce and the rest of the wet ingredients to it, i beat the mixture till it was smooth. i then folded in the dry ingredients and the apple pieces into the wet mixture, adding them alternatively a little bit at a time till the batter was smooth. 
  • then pouring the batter into the prepared pan i baked it for 35 minutes, i.e until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake came out clean.

decorating the Cake.
    after letting the cake cool for over an hour i frosted it using Duncan Hines Creamy Homestyle Classic Vanilla frosting and i piped using Wilton's Ready to Use Decorating Icing Tube. For the rippled border and the smaller flowers(I know they are not perfect... nevertheless i call them so..) I used Wilton's 104 tip and this tutorial that i found on youtube. Of course turning the cake around wasn't as easy as turning the cupcake. but it helped to put the cake on a quarter plate and turn that around. 

    so that was my #2 cake of A Cake A Week. honoring St Patricks Day, I am planning on a eggless minty streusel-ribboned cake for week 3. More on that next Sunday....

    Have a great week !
