Method: Mix the apple, walnuts, raisins with half a cup of brown sugar and place it in a greased oven-proof bowl approximately 6 inch in diameter. In another bowl combine the flour, oats, cinnamon powder, butter and the remaining sugar. Mix well using your finger tips till the mixture resembles bread crumbs.

Apple Cinnamon Cake

Ingredients:Wheat flour—1 cup; flour (maida) – 1 cup; baking powder — 2 teaspoons; soda bi-carbonate (cooking soda) — ½ tsp; cinnamon powder — 3/4 teaspoon; powdered sugar — 1 cup; melted butter – 150 grams; apple puree — 1½ cups (3-4 medium apple); milk — 1 cup; some extra butter and flour for greasing and dusting the cake tin

Method: Take a cake tin 7 inches in diameter and grease it with butter and dust it with refined flour. Dust off the excess. Keep it aside. Preheat the oven to 200° degree celsius. Sieve the flour, baking powder, soda bi-carbonate, cinnamon powder and powdered sugar together. Mix together skimmed milk and unsweetened apple puree till well blended. Add the melted butter and mix again. Gradually add the flour mixture, stirring well to prevent the formation of lumps. If the mixture is too thick, add a little water or milk to get the right consistency. Put the mixture in the well greased cake tin and bake in the preheated oven at 200° degree Celsius for thirty five to forty minutes. Decorate the cake with apple slices and icing sugar. Serve with (or without) vanilla ice-cream or fresh whipped cream.
