Blended apple cake

Everybody knows about apple cake, but this one is quite exceptional and aromatic. We made it by cooking the apples in a pan with butter and sugar until completely caramelized, and then transferred them to the cake mixture. This "trick" provides a unique aroma, taste, and, above all, softness to the cake. And, if you like, you can add a pinch of cinnamon to give it that extra bit of spice!

Preparation

Peel the apples and cut into wedges. Cook them in a pan with 60g of butter, 50g of sugar and a pinch of cinnamon (if you like cinnamon). When the apple is well cooked, leave it to caramelize for a while until it becomes a beautiful amber colour, then mash it up with a wooden spoon or, if you prefer, blitz with an electric blender. Transfer to a bowl. Add all the other ingredients: eggs, flour, baking powder, the remaining butter (melted), and the remaining sugar. Mix together really well with a wooden spoon. Pour the mixture into a buttered and floured baking tin. Garnish with a few slices of apple, sprinkle with a little sugar (we used light brown sugar), and bake at 180°C for 30 minutes.

Tips
Caramelize the apples well: the more golden they are, the more delicious the cake will be!
Trivia
Cinnamon is an ancient spice, known as much for its healing properties as for its unique aroma. It is, in fact, excellent for rheumatism, aches and colds.
