This simplistic Apple Raisin Cake made with 50% whole wheat flour is one of those basic cakes which are easy to make and healthy too!
Baking was off from quite sometime in our household because of the neck ,but now from sometime, Ojas wants the baked goodies with a vengeance… as if he wants to make up for the missed time 🙂 This Apple Raisin cake is something I baked the other day!
I baked honey raisin cake from Tara’s blog in a loaf tin and we had it all for breakfast… Ojas with jam, N with honey and me as it is 🙂
And as soon as that got over, he started the story yet again “mumma make cake” sigh… So I made this Apple Raisin cake… I love fruit cakes… they are moist, soft and you don’t need to put in too much sugar…
Actually, there are two great advantages of baking with fruits. The amount of sugar gets lowered and so does the amount of fat used in the bake. If you want to lower your sugar intake and yet not compromise on your sweet tooth, baking with fruits is a great option. Using fruit puree can make baking a great deal easier. Using fruits like bananas, apples, pears, pineapples, dates, figs and mangoes in baking means that since the fruits are naturally sweet, you can lower the additional sugar content in the recipe. Even dried fruits like apricots or figs can be used for baking. Just soak them on water, cook them for a while and then puree them and use them. They are so good for health and can be a great substitute for sugar!
Talking about fruits and baking, I realised I have loads of recipes on the blog which use fruit as a base for cooking. Did you check out these ones?
