Apple bundt cake and a walk in the park
Everybody has a favourite season, I am more of a spring and summer girl. However since I started getting really into photography I started to like autumn too. There is no light so mysterious and enchanting as autumn light falling through an ochre and brown colours scheme. Sheer beauty!
A few years ago I took my nephew on an autumn photography workshop in the park. He loves taking photos and has a really good eye for a good image. We had such a fun day and I was amazed of the great shots he took. Have a look at my Facebook page and discover them!
As a reward I baked this cake for him: apple bundt cake with 'speculoos' spices. It was a hit and now a tradition every autumn: we go for a photography walk in the parc and when we come home we have bundt cake and hot chocolate!
Apple bundt cake
225 gr melted butter
2 teaspoons baking powder (8 gr)
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate
2 teaspoons speculoos spices (I get mine from 'Dille & Kamille')
pinch of salt
2 apples, peeled cored and cut into small slices
200gr white sugar
1 sachet vanilla sugar
Grease and flour a 25cm diameter bundt cake tin
Mix flour, spices, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In another large bowl whisk butter, sugar and eggs until smooth. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Don't over mix. Use a rubber spatula to fold in the apples. Spoon the batter in the Bundt tin.
Preheat the oven to 180°C and bake for 50-60 minutes. Test with a skewer to see if the cakes is baked throughout. Take out of the oven and cool for 15 min on a rack before taking out of the tin.
Decorate with a dusting of icing sugar.
