Only 3 more sleeps until Game Of Thrones Season 3! Today I tried the best snack in all the realm has to offer!(In my opinion) Apple cakes! They're delicious and filling.
For the cake:
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
2 tart apples, peeled, cored, and diced
For the topping:
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease the cups of a jumbo muffin pan.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
Gradually add the dry mixture to the creamed mixture, alternating with sour cream and mixing well after each addition.
Sprinkle the topping evenly over the batter- filled cups, pressing gently to mix it with the cake. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Allow to cool.
These were some great desserts! The apple batter with the walnut/ground cinnamon topping is an amazing combination and it brings so many different textures and taste to your mouth! Highly recommend.
