We celebrated our belated Valentine's day last night. It was lovely, full of kisses and cupcakes! I must admit that the cupcakes turned out really well! :-) Oh and we watched Up. One of the most darling animations I had ever seen. Have you seen it? Did you cry over the first thirty minutes, or it is just me?!
Okay... Here is the recipe for you :
200 grams sugar
300 grams (2 medium) apples
100 grams unsalted butter
50 grams vegetable oil
50 grams hazelnuts (powdered)
15 grams cocoa powder
100 grams plain flour
50 grams rice flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
And a pinch of salt...
First peel off the apples and mash them. In a medium bowl whisk the eggs for about two minutes, then add the mashed apples, sugar, melted butter and oil, and whisk for two more minutes.
In another bowl mix together the plain flour, rice flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and hazelnuts powder. It's better if you do it by a sifter.
Mix all the ingredients and whisk until all combine.Bake at 350F for about half and hour.
I will share the upshot photos and icing recipe soon today.
Have a deliciously beautiful day, lovelies!
