- Irish apple and whisky cake
One of my client is ‘Pall Mall Fine Wine’. I make cakes, sweets and other little treats for their events. Tonight is whisky tasting… My mission is to make cakes and chocolate mousse with whisky. It is perfect timing as I am in my ‘I am craving for sugar’ period. Strange as I normally don’t have a sweet tooth. It must be the cold, winter, January, the sun I am missing… We had – 6°C at night recently in London! So that’s enough excuses to eat candies and chocolate cookies every day and not feeling too guilty! Here is the recipe of my ‘Irish apple and whisky cake’.
‘Irish apple and whisky cake’ serves 6;
– 200g of sugar
– 200g of flour
– 100g of butter
– 2 eggs
– 2 apples
– Zest and juice of half a lemon
– 25g of baking powder
– 8 tbsp of milk
– 7 or 8 tbsp of whisky (can be replaced by rum or brandy)
Melt the butter and mix it with the sugar, eggs, zest and lemon juice. Add the flour, baking powder and then whisky and milk.
Peel and slice the apples. Preheat your oven at 180° (gas 6). Grease a baking loaf tin. Taste your preparation, please be generous with whisky as it depends on which one you have you will have to add one or two tbsp. Pour in the preparation first then slices of apple, then preparation and finish with apples. Put it in the oven for 45min.
This is a delicious cake, easy to make and don’t forget to be generous with whisky, it’s winter we need to warm-up !
