Today is a confusing day…
The sun in shining so hard, you almost get sunburned and you could probably sit outside just wearing a T-Shirt.
And we went ice skating.
Sounds logical right?
Well, because the weather was so super nice, we wanted to go for a nice long walk. I knew of a little train nearby going up a hill which should be ideal for walking. So far we never went there, so up we went and the first thing we saw was an artificial ice track. I was never really good in ice skating, to be cruelty honest here I was already happy if I could skate for a meter straight without holding on to something.
Today was actually the last day the ice track was open and so my boyfriend didn’t want to waste an opportunity here and get on the ice! I was really skeptical and honestly a bit afraid, too. It has been years for both of us to stand on the ice, but oh well… here we come! We hired some ice skates and went on the ice. In the beginning I didnt dare to let go of the fence but very slowly I moved forward meter by meter. My boyfriend, who is not afraid of anything just went for it and after a few minutes was already able to skate quite well 😉
So instead of enjoying the first real warm and nice spring days like it is supposed to be (eating ice cream, sitting in the sun or going for a walk) we went ice skating!
Wait, it gets even better. Instead of a super nice spring recipe I present to you an Apple Cinnamon Cake. But bare with me here: Apples are almost always in season right, Cinnamon just tastes good all year round, so why not make an apple cinnamon cake right now and enjoy it while sitting in the sun? 😉 It is really delicious so you should definitely give it a try.
Apple Cinnamon Cake
Makes 1 Cake (Ø 24cm)
- Beat the eggs and sugar until airy and light.
- Slowly add the apple sauce and keep mixing until everything is incorporated.
- Add the milk and whisk everything together.
- Combine the dry ingredients: flour, grounded almonds, baking powder and cinnamon and add them one spoon at a time to your batter. Mix well in between each addition.
- Pour the batter into a buttered and floured baking tin.
- Roll your cut apple pieces in some cinnamon and add them on top of the cake batter. This will prevent the apple pieces to sink down to the bottom of the cake. If you prefer some apple pieces to go really inside the cake, only cover half of the apple pieces with cinnamon and leave the rest uncovered.
- Bake the cake for 45 minutes at 200°C (180° Fan Oven).
- Let the cake cool completely and dust it with some Icing Sugar 😉
- 2 Eggs
- 350g Brown Sugar
- 175ml Apple Sauce or Apple Puree (smooth)
- 175ml Milk
- 250g Flour
- 250g Almonds, grounded
- 2 Tsp Baking Powder
- 2 Tbsp Cinnamon
- 1 big Apple, cut in pieces
- some Cinnamon to dust the apple pieces
