Apple Cake a la Magnifico

Here's a moist cake with subtle flavors of cinnamon and apple. It’s an ideal creation to serve at “high tea” with chocolate, demitasse,  cortado (espresso with milk), or tea.


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup grated fresh apples, about 2 apples
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2-1/2 cups sifted cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, 2 egg whites; or 8 ounces (1 cup) egg-substitute
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup skim milk

DIRECTIONS

STEP 1
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

STEP 2
Peel, core, grate and measure apples.

STEP 3
In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, oil and sugar; beat until well-blended, 10 or 15 minutes.

STEP 4
In a separate large bowl, mix together cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Set aside.

STEP 5
Add eggs to butter mixture, and beat at low speed, mixing well. Combine grated apple and buttermilk; to it, in 3 portions, add flour mixture, alternating with apple-buttermilk; beat at low speed. Do not over beat.

STEP 6
Grease and flour a non-stick Bundt pan; pour batter into pan. Bake 45 minutes; when the cake-tester comes out clean, it is done. Cool completely before turning out onto a pretty cake platter. Mix milk with powdered sugar, and dribble over cake.

STEP 7
Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
