Brunch Cake

This recipe is from one of my beloved recipe book…Cakes from Pageone
In fact this is the first cookbook I bought once I got hooked on baking….Almost 3 years back
I have tried almost half of the recipes from it and its totally fool proof. As the pics in the book all cakes came out absolutely delicious.
I tried most of the recipes from this book on my first oven, the small countertop oven.
When I moved to our current place I got a real big built-in oven but sadly my little cook book vanished. I thought we must have lost it during the move.
This weekend when I was going thru the pile of folders looking for a doc, I saw my dearest cookbook happily hiding inside one of those folders.The next thing I did was to bake one cake from the book right away:-)
Needless to say I totally forgot about the doc I was looking for!!!
Anyways coming to the recipe, as the name says Brunch cake is a perfect item for Brunch, totally guilt free, luscious n healthy with a perfect combination of fruit and nuts
Here goes the recipe
1/ 2 Cup + 1tbspn Packed brown Sugar
3/4 Cup All purpose Flour
1 whole egg + 1 egg white
2 tbspn Oil
1 tspn Vanilla extract
1/2 tspn Cinnamon powder
1/2 tspn All Spice powder
1/2 tspn Baking powder
1/4 tspn Baking Soda
Pinch of salt
2 Granny smith apples, Grated
1/2 Cup Pecans Chopped
1/4 Cup raisins

Preheat the oven to 180 Degree
Mix Brown sugar, eggs, flour, oil, vanilla, cinnamon, spice powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl .
Using an electric mixer or whisk beat until all ingredients are well blended.
Stir in grated apples, pecans, raisins.
Pour the batter to a buttered square pan.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until a toothpick inserted at the center of the cake comes out clean.

If you prefer, give it a topping of your choice. I chose to give it a caramel topping..
For the topping you need about ¼ Cup caramel bits and a tablespoon of cream.
Heat the caramel melts in microwave for a min or two until the chips melts slightly.
Stir in the cream and mix well.
Spread the topping over the cooled cake and let it rest for 20 min for the topping to set..

And have a great brunch!!!

  35. I made an alternate version of this: I used 1/2 cup whole weat flour and 1/2 cup oatmeal, 2-3 tablespoons honey instead of sugar and I used some red grapes from my lovely garden.
    It's my greatest success so far,try it!
