Apple pudding cake 蘋果布甸蛋糕

2010-05-27 Apple bread

Recently I got free lunch from a project everyday, they usually order a lunch box that comes with sandwich, cookies and a very small apple. Yup, the kind of apple that doesn't look intriguing. How should I deal with it? Make them into something tasty -- and here it is the apple pudding cake!

I looked up a few pound cake and apple cake recipes and came up with this one. I replaced some portion of butter with yogurt and tossed the apples with custard powder (so it won't be watery around the apple cubes), resulting a very soft, moist, almost pudding-like apple cake. It's yummy and full of apple flavour! 10 million times better than the raw tiny apple.

What a lovely cake, looks delicious. I need to try to find custard powder, I don't think I have seen any around.

Anna: I found them in World's Market in Seattle, or Asian grocery store. Otherwise, you can buy it from Amazon. :)
