Lately, the country’s agricultural economy has been suffering. We’ve been cultivating amazing produce when it comes to fruits and vegetables and farmers are now capable of exporting their goods and therefore make our economy better. What I understood is that things are apparently not working properly to encourage and allow those farmers to export their goods and expand, or even sell locally due to all imported goods we get. I don’t know the story very well, but I know we – the Lebanese people – have been encouraging the production of our apples for over a month now. Every Lebanese person I know has cartons and cartons of apples at home. Apple pies, apple cakes and apple crumbles are THE go-to desserts this fall.

On an October Sunday, my dad distributed huge amounts of apple to everyone. We came straight home to make the easiest apple cinnamon cake you can ever make. Here’s how to make it.

Breadonbutter’s Apple Cinnamon Cake Recipe

What you’ll need:

  • 125 g sugar
  • 250 g self-raising flour
  • 50 g butter, diced and softened
  • 3 to 4 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 100 ml milk
  • A sprinkling of cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt

How to make it:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees celsius
  2. In a large bowl, place the sugar and sifted flour with the butter, apples, a sprinkling of cinnamon and a pinch of salt
  3. In a small bowl, beat the egg, then mix in the milk
  4. Add the milk and egg to the large bowl and mix well to combine. Do Not Be Surprised here. The mix will look weird but keep going till the flour is all wet
  5. Grease a mold and pour in the mix
  6. Bake 25 minutes, then sprinkle cinnamon on top and re-bake 10 minutes

Enjoy with a coffee or as a late-night snack 😉
