"Kuchen" is german word for "Cake". Though this cake has nothing German about, I called it Apple Kuchen to make it sound exotic. I made this use up some apples that have been lying in my refrigerator. The cake turned our really, really moist & delicious. I am going to make it more often.
2 cups - apples (peeled, cored & diced into small peices)
1 cup - sugar
1/2 tspn - lime juice
1 tspn - cinnamon powder
1/4 tspn - nutmeg grated
a pinch of salt
1-1/2 cup - refined flour
1 tspn - baking soda
handful of raisins
handful of walnuts
handful of tutti-frutti
1/2 cup butter / ghee - melted and at room temperature
In a bowl put the apples, sugar, lime juice, cinnamon & nutmeg powder. Crush them coarsely with your hands & set aside for 10 mins
Seive the flour, salt & baking powder.
Add the butter & mix well
Now break the egg & beat & add to the flour / butter mixture
Add the apples, walnuts, raisins & the tutti-frutti - mix well
Reserve some tutti-frutti for the topping.
Preheat oven to 180C.
Grease a baking dish & pour the mixture into it.
