Apple crumb cake : Eggless

I had apples which I wanted to use in a cake recipe.I came across this cake recipe @ http://mykitchenaroma.blogspot.in/2009/09/eggless-apple-vanilla-cake-with-apple.html.I made some changes & got a nicely textured cake.I feel this is the best cake ,I have baked so far !

Ingredients : 3/4 cup multigrain atta,1/4 cup quick cooking oats,1tbsp butter ( I used Amul butter ),1tsp baking powder,1/4 tsp baking soda,1/2 cup apple puree, 1/2 cup dahi,1 cup sugar,1 apple peeled & chopped,1 /2-1tsp cinnamon powder.

Method : Chop an apple & cook it in pressure cooker for 1 whistle.After the cooker has cooled,remove the apple .The peel easily comes off .Make a paste of the apple pieces.Keep aside.

Mix  atta,oats & butter nicely.A crumb type mixture is obtained.Add baking soda & powder.Mix nicely.Add 3/4 cup sugar & mix again.Keep aside.

Mix apple paste & dahi & slowly add to the atta mixture.The cake dough this formed, must be of drop down consistency.If it is not,add some water & make it of drop down consistency.Keep aside.

Line the cake vessel with butter paper.Now arrange the chopped apple pieces at the bottom on the butter paper.The whole bottom must be  lined with apple pieces.Sprinkle cinnomon powder & 1/4 cup sugar on to the chopped apple pieces.Pour the cake dough on to the apple pieces covered with cinnamon sugar mix.

Microwave for 10 minutes.Allow for 10 minutes for microwave to cool.Remove the cake vessel & let it cool outside for 10-15 minutes.Turn the cake vessel upside down on to a plate.

The cake will drop down on to the plate after some 10  minutes.Carefully remove the butter paper sticking to the cake bottom.Allow the cake to cool for some more time.Cut into desired pieces & serve.

I found the cake texture superb ! Only the cinnamon -sugar mixture was too ,sticky ,sweet & strong.Next time,I am going to sprinkle just 1 tbsp of sugar on the chopped apple pieces along with maybe 1/2 to 3/4 tsp cinnamon. The sugar in cake will be 1 cup less 1 tbsp.
