My Hearty Apple Cake

Here’s my favorite “Apple Cake” recipe that I’m going to share with you all! I’ve been baking and re-baking it; replacing ingredients, different measurements. It’s the best one so far, at least for me and my family! Recently I made one for my dearest dad to take it with him on his vacation.
Attention: Try to “imagine” what the lil’ girl is sitting on is an apple! It’s supposed to be but I don’t know why it looks like a rotten one!
And now the recipe itself:

~Apple Cake~

2 medium apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 Tbs brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup brown sugar
¼ cup margarine or butter, softened
1 egg
¼ cup low-fat milk
1 cup chopped walnut (optional)

Direction: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Mix apples, 1 Tbs brown sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon powder in a bowl and set aside. Now sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon powder. Add chopped walnuts to the flour mixture. Mix together sugar, margarine and egg. Now add the wet ingredients to the dry ones (or the other way around!). Gradually add milk to this mixture so the dough would loosen up a bit. Finally mix in the apple mixture with a wooden spoon or a spatula. Pour the batter into a prepared 9x5 inch loaf pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes.

*You can serve it hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some home-made caramel sauce! Yummmm!

Cheers :-)

I do not understand...why do we set aside the brown sugar and cinnamon .
Is it to sprinkle over the top??

Well, this will help extracting all those delish juices out of the apples! It's somehow like a strong "apple extract"! :-)
