Belinda's Apple & Brandy Cake

We have been given very generously lots of cooking & eating apples - so another apple recipe from Belinda (www.pamperedchef.biz/belindawood) has really helped to reduce our bountiful supply of apples!

I slightly amended it to make it gluten and sugar free - we had some lovely friends over for a bbq and there was only one bit left! Definitely needs to be served slightly warm with custard or ice-cream!! Absolutely delicious

165g butter plus another 50g (room temp if possible)
165g Xylitol (or sugar) plus 2 tbsp for sprinkling
2 free range eggs
250g Brown Rice Flour
125g of apple sauce plus 5 more tablespoons (I made loads from cooking apples & lots of Xylitol)
3 tbsp brandy
2 tsp baking powder (gluten free)
4 eating apples
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
Serve with Alpro custard or Booja Booja ice-cream

This recipe is so easy - I used my square baker and I lined it with greaseproof paper to make it easier to take out later.

Cut up the 50g of butter and sprinkle all over the base with a couple of tbsp of Xylitol. Peel the eating apples, core them, cut them into chunks and then decorate them over the bottom.

Put all the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and whisk together until smooth and quite runny - add more apple sauce if too stiff. (if you forget to take butter out of the fridge then cut into small chunks & then whisk alone until it becomes soft & smooth - then add all the other ingredients

Pour the mixture over the apples, smooth flat and pop into a preheated oven (180C) for 25 mins or until a knife comes out clean.

Now gently pop out onto a wire wrack, pull off the greaseproof paper & see your lovely design of apples! Cut it into squares, pile onto a plate once cooled a little and serve with dairy free custard and Booja Booja ice-cream (get from health food shops) - absolutely delicious!
