I Need A Cake!

I had a mid-morning craving for a cake. *Who doesn't?* 

The last cake I'd bake was before Eid. So I think this will justified my craving. I've had several options of course. This time, I'm going to try something new. Not that what I already have in my repertoire couldn't do their job. This is more like a-newbie-in-baking thing. We've got to try something new so we can develop it to our taste. 

Thus, my heart was pulled into several directions. One, a very beautiful looking Black Forest Cake. As I read through the instructions, I was a bit disheartened. Too many step to follow. Urgh! So I save it for another time when I'm not so much in a hurry. Now moving on to a second choice. Strawberry Shortcake Cake. Looks easy enough to do. But...there's no strawberry laying around in my house! Not even strawberry jam. Which drag me towards a very plain looking cake. I mean it. Seriously the most plain-looking cake ever. 

Which I'm in doubt either to try it or not. But looking at the ingredients plus it's very simple steps, I thought: Okay, just give it a go. I'm sooo in NEED of a CAKE right now! 

After all the jumble trouble and everything. It's done. And... 

It was so darn good!

I've just reduced the sugar a bit. And follow anything else in the ingredients. It's perfect for snacking. Was not too sweet. The apples give it a slight tartness. The crumbs are tender without being too moist. Overall, I'm satisfied. I think it is best to let it cool a few hours to let the flavors mingle a bit before serving. But I don't think you can manage to do that. Me included! 

Here's the recipe. Dig in! ;)
