Christmas Calendar 2016 - Apple ginger cake

It is always nice to enjoy some cake for your afternoon coffee/tea. This time I have been baking this apple ginger cake for my colleagues at work in order to say "thank you" to the "elfs" (nisser). For the last three years I have been hanging up a Christmas stocking at work as decoration. The most existing part is that every day during these years some "elfs" are putting various fills into my Christmas stocking :-). And this years more "elfs" are active !!! So today it is time for my colleague to enjoy a piece of cake for their afternoon coffee as "thank yor" to the "elfs" from my side.

Apple ginger cake:

  • 300 g apples - peeled, cored and cut into smaller pieces
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 190 g (cake) wheat flour
  • 60 g oat flakes - blended into flour
  • 30 g almonds - blended into flour
  • 85 g sugar
  • 1½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon home-made vanilla sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs

  1. Heat up the oven to 185'C.
  2. Mix 50 g of the apples pieces with 1 tablespoon sugar and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon. Set a side in a small bowl.
  3. Add wheat, oat and almond flour into a mixing bowl together with sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, vanilla sugar and salt.
  4. Add eggs, buttermilk and oil into another mixing bowl and whip it together by hand.
  5. Add the liquid phase into the dry part, and stir by hand into a homogeneous mass.
