The other day my friend Krisha came over and brought the most delicious apple cake from a local Ann Arbor bakery next to her house. For the last few days I've been craving this cake, but it's been snowing and it's so cold outside that I was too lazy and cheap to go buy it from the bakery. Anyways, to make a long story short I decided to look up a random recipe on the net and bake my own cake. I had two apples at home too, so I was all set. The internet is an amazing tool for recipe searching! I love that I can look up various recipes, and make my own up from them. (Click here for the recipe.)
The apple cake turned out very well, I decided to make them into apple muffins instead of a cake which worked out great, except I would fill the cups a little more evenly next time to ensure my muffins end up more uniform. I baked them in silicone muffin trays (bought for me by my sister), and they unmolded quite easily as a result. I found this recipe to be a bit too sweet for my taste, as it calls for 1 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of brown sugar. So I'd modify that the next time.
It's a very light and airy batter. I made up a batch, and I am going to send a whole bunch of them with my husband to share with his starving friends at the business school.
One day I overheard my husband decline meeting his friend at our complex property managment's free breakfast, due to the reason that 'he had a wife who makes him breakfast'. And the next day his friend came up to me and asked just what exactly I made at home for breakfast that was so amazing and could he come over too. My husband better enjoy it while he gets it, because there is no telling how I am going to turn the tables on him when I start working. Good thing he doesn't read this blog.
Let me know if you make the cake, and how it turns out for you!
