Cake and last day of school

thumb_IMG_0873_1024I used to make a lot of sponge cakes pre my quest for a gluten free existence. I do like at the weekend to drink my coffee or tea in the sunshine with a piece of cake.  Today is last day of school so cake is a requirement.  It is funny in Sweden we call sponge cake Sugar cake (socker kaka), hence I felt adding the translation was  not the thing to do it being sugar free!

The school finale was great the kids sang in the wind… half of it blew away but they looked happy and so did us parents.  The funny thing is that Fritids or after school club is on so afterwards they can go straight back in to normal routine.  But I think it is just the adults who care about that.

Apple and Cinnamon Sponge Cake 180 degrees Cthumb_IMG_0872_1024

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp birch sugar
  • 75 grams of butter – melted and cooled
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 dl oat flour
  • 1 tbsp po fibre
  • 1 tbsp psyllium husk (fiber husk)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch vanilla powder
  • around 1 dl of water – pour this in at the end to make it a nice thick batter.

Whisk the eggs and the two sugars, then add the banana (mashed up – I do this by just squeezing it a lot and then taking it out of its skin).  Add all the dry ingredients and mix then the butter and lastly the water to get the mixture to a thick batter.

Then peel, core and chop an apple, then cut into slices.  Mix 1 tbsp of cinnamon and 1 tbsp of coconut sugar and then cover the apples in the mixture.

Cook in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes at 180 degrees C.
