Hop Right In!

I believe that salt is to food, what food is to life. In right proportions, it can heighten the taste of what you eat..and in the wrong - destroy! Even the most delicious sweets come added with some salt...to taste!

As for me, I've never enjoyed cooking. And as contrary to my owning a food-blog as it may sound, I always think about daily, routine cooking as a chore. But my tryst with the pots and pans began when I got a kitchen all to myself...I began experimenting and exploring new worlds in my own home. Some outcomes were excellent and some plain disasters. Then sprouted the need to keep track of all those good ones...and hence this blog!

Here, I share those experiments that pleased more than one palate!

Apple Cake

I happened to share the picture of this cake with my friends on a social networking site....and guess what, so many of them wanted the recipe. So here it is! Enjoy!!

1.5 Cups All purpose flour
1 cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter (Unsalted and at room temperature)
2 Eggs, beaten well
1.5 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Cup Milk
2 Apples ( Washed, peeled and cored)
And just a pinch of salt

For Decoration
1Box of Whipped Frosting
Dried fruits (Ive used Apricots, Raisins and Almonds)
Cinnamon Powder (for dusting)

- Preheat oven to 350F
- Grease and flour the baking dish and set aside
- Cream together the sugar and butter. Now add the eggs and mix well to form a smooth paste
- Combine the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside
- Mix the butter mixture and four and add milk and stir to make a batter of very smooth consistency. The more you blend in the better.
- Grate apples and add to this batter
- Pour onto baking dish and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
from the center of the dish.
- Allow to cool
- Once cool flip onto a large plate and add frosting and decorate as desired with dry fruits
