How to shop in a supermarket – The 4 ingredients apple cake

by soffiagudrun

It was kind of neat what  Michael Pollan talked about in one of his book about the structure of supermarkets.

What he talked about is you should shop “around” the store, buy the products that are around the outer ring of the store, not what´s in all the aisles inside the store where they keep most of the overly prosessed food.

You find things like fresh meet and fish, vegetable, fruits, the milk products and eggs on the walls around the aisles.  Then once in a while you can go through the aisles and buy cleaning stuff, flours, sugar and that kind of things.  Skip the product that can stay on the shelf for years…

This recipe was to simple not to try it.  And it was gone as soon as it came out of the oven.

It´s good on it´s own but would work well with cream or Ice cream.  There was no cinnamon in this recipe and I didn´t use any, but of course  it is possible to sprinkle a little bit cinnamon and sugar on top.

Flour, sugar, egg, apples….ta taaaaaaa.

Easy apple cake

  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 apples

Take the skin off the apples and cut them into bites.

Whip together the sugar and eggs with an electric mixer  for about  2 minutes.

Add the flour and mix everything well together with a spoon.  (NB, with some spoon, not the electric mixer)

Add the apples to a buttered cake mold and pour the batter over the apples.

Bake for 5 minutes at 200°c (400 f). Lower the heat to 180°c ( 360 f ) and bake for 30 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown.

It´s been so nice to see nature come to life here in the country, we pass by the horses with the new born foals, the cows with the calfs and then the sheep with the so adorable little lambs.  So this time I am not giving you a  recipe for a spicy lamb stew …
