Friday and what a week this has been, my part time job is going well, and I am having fun. I have a bit of exciting news to share with you. On Wednesday I received an email from Foodgawker, my No Bake Mini Chocolate Cheesecake photo was accepted. 🙂 I was super excited about this news!! When I first saw the email I didn’t read it right away because I thought it would be the standard Thank you but Unfortunately.
After work I read all the mails that I had received, and it was time to read Foodgawker’s email and I could not believe it. Shocked I say!!! hehehe Don’t think that this is the first one I sent in and it got accepted. Nooooooo I have sent 17 photos and all were rejected. 🙂 I know that I still have a lot of work to do with photography. I have been following some on-line courses for food photography. The one that I absolutely love and if you haven’t heard of her yet, you should definitely check it out is the thebiteshot.com on youtube. Her name is Joanie and she is fantastic!!. Such simple tips and tricks sometimes does actually do the trick. 🙂
Once I was done with work yesterday, and watching the latest video Joanie posted on youtube. I headed into the kitchen to make this pretty simple Apple Cake. I had to much to do during the day so I wanted to make a simple dessert with ingredients that I already had in the kitchen. Honestly, I wasn’t really in the mood to go running to the supermarket. I did take Charlie out for his afternoon walk because that makes me happy too, getting off that chair that I have been sitting on all morning long, stretching a bit and a whole lot of walking.
So, this is what I mean about taking photos and understanding the camera. I know I took photos of how I prepared this cake, but I can’t seem to find them. The camera that I own now has a memory card uxxx but no memory of these photos??? pfffff!!! Sorry everyone!!
The steps are very simple, just follow the prep instructions below: 🙁
4 Apples (peeled and sliced)
1 cup Sugar
1 1/2 cup Self Rising Flour
1 Vanilla Stick
1/2 cup melted Butter
1/2 tablespoon Cinnamon
1/2 cup Sugar
A) Peel and slice Apples
B) In a large mixing bowl add eggs and 250 grams Sugar. Beat on high for 10 minutes. Add in the Vanilla that you have extracted from the stick and slowly add in the flour.
C) In a baking pan of your choice place the apples. (make sure to cover the whole pan)
4) Pour the butter over the apples.
5) Sprinkle 1/2 cup of Sugar and Cinnamon generously over the apples.
6) Pour batter over apples. (make sure it covers all areas)
7) Pre – heat oven at 180 and bake for 40 minutes.
You can either butter the bottom part of the pan before placing the apples, so once the cake is baked you can turn it over and have the apples on top, or you can do what I did for a change. I like to eat cake first and leave the fruit last. 🙂 It is up to you. 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone!!
