My new found friend Florence (Bliss in the Kitchen) from France was so sweet to enclose a recipe she got from her mum's aunt when she sent me her BBM package. It's called Gateau Princesse and it's supposedly an apple cake. Hmmm however mine turned out like apple pudding. I'm not sure if it's because I read the recipe wrongly. The steps were quite vague and I just went along with whatever baking instincts i had. I liked how it turned out though. It was a nice warm dessert to have in the morning. Apples are good. . . especially those cooked warm in pies or puddings eh?
Here's the recipe, courtesy of Flo...
6 tbsp granulated sugar
6 tbsp all-purpose flour
6 tbsp milk
125g butter (melted)
a pinch of salt
1. Peel and core apples. Cut them into quarters and slice thinly. Set aside
2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and melted butter
3. Pour in the eggs, one at a time, and the milk, until smooth.
4. Put in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree celcius.
*Note: I used brown sugar instead of normal white sugar. The recipe didn't say whether to lay the apples layer by layer, so I simply mixed the whole lot with the mixture. I used Royal Gala apples.
