An Apple a day :-) I am back folks!!!

One of my friends, a Doctor gave me a couple of really interesting facts about apples and their nutritional benefits.

I must say that I am follower of the apple cult today :-).Some really useful information is  available on google as well: 

  • One apple, on average, contains more antioxidants than a large vitamin C dose of 1,500 mg.
  • Apples are also full of phytochemicals that help with antioxidant activity, as well as in preventing cancer. 
  • The Phytonutrients contained in apples are another type of antioxidant. These assist in fighting the harmful effects of bad LDL cholesterol, which, in turn, prevents heart disease.
  •  Apples have been found to prevent or decrease the effects of osteoporosis because they contain a flavanoid called phloridzin, as well as boron. Boron is an essential trace element that increases bone density and makes bones stronger.
  • Another one of the apple nutrition facts is that they contain quercetin, which is a substance that could protect brain cells from developing Alzheimer’s disease, caused by free radical damage.
  • Apples contain pectin, which helps the digestive process, since it is a soluble fiber. One apple has the same amount of fiber that is contained in a breakfast bran cereal bowl. Also, the pectin contained in apples supplies the body with galacturonic acid, which is a substance that decreases the body’s insulin needs and, in turn, may assist in managing diabetes.

Okay , I admit I have been building this case up to hide my “Love of Fruit Cakes”…there…I said it :-).

Having said that, I just felt the fierce need to bake something fruity, decadent and full of the goodness of apples at “4 AM” today!!

So the end result was the heavenly smell of fresh baking emanating in our flat and till the corridor and all the ladies who were rushing off to work were giving me those knowing grins on my way down the lift to get into that waiting office cab.

I found this recipe on my hunt through google so sorry if I do not have the source details.Anyone can feel free to claim this as their own, though I have made changes based on ingredients that were readily available with me.

Rich Apple Cake:

  • 4 cups chopped apples
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 3 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup Nutralite
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped Almonds

How to Prepare:

In bowl, mix together apples, 2 cups sugar, 2 teaspoons baking soda. Let stand 45 minutes.

Add 3/4 cup oil, 2 beaten eggs, 3 cups apf, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 2/3 teaspoons salt, and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Stir and pour into either 9 X 13 pan or 11 X 15 pan.I used two pans of 6 inch size. 

For topping, mix together 1 rounded teaspoon cinnamon, 1 cup brown sugar, and 1/4 cup sugar. Sprinkle on the dough.

Drizzle melted nutralite over topping. Top with chopped fine almond.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
