So the popping question is what do i do with 5 kilos of free apple (remember i collected them on the road in Massif Central with my mother in-law)? Considering that my husband is not really an apple person (neither me). I just couldn't make a simple compote with them and tarte tatin is too simple for him... So i concocted this recipe inspired with a oatmeal cake recipe i read in an inflight magazine when we went to New york. Luckily I discovered that I have a box of muesli cereals that's near it's expiration. I thought it would be a perfect ingredient to go with my cake. The result is an amazing delicious cake. It's a bit crunchy outside and creamy inside. The caramelized apple blended well too with the pastis liquor that I used (it is basically a liquor popular in Marseille made of anis and reglisse).
Ingredients: 125 g of butter
110 g of brown sugar
150 g of flour
60 g of muesli cereals with dried fruits
1 tbsp of baking powder
1 tsp of cinnamon
2 tsps of pastis
25 g of butter
Peel and slice the apples (remove the middle part). On a bowl marinate the apple with pastis and cinnamon powder for thirty minutes. Caramelise them on a pan with 25 g of butter and set them aside. Beat the egg and mix the sugar. Add into the mixutre the dry ingredients; flour, bakign powder and muesli cereals. Melt the butter and add into the mixture. Grease a baking pan and put half of the cake mixture , and layer them after wards with the caramelised apples. Cover it with the rest of the cake mixture. Cook at 370 F for 20-25 minutes on a pre-heated oven.
