Hats off to Compostwoman who pointed out earlier today that this is indeed Apple Day! In celebration and commemoration of that fact, I decided to have a go at a recipe posted by Mama Sophia for apple chocolate chip cake. It was my first attempt at baking using the American method of measuring in cups, and I felt very out of my comfort zone, doing without my kitchen scales!
However, the recipe turned out very well. I only made a half quantity as I wanted to make it as cup cakes rather than a tray bake, and I put extra cocoa in the mixture. I also had to add extra baking powder to the second lot of cupcakes to go in the oven as the first batch didn’t rise very well. The smell in the kitchen though, was to die for, and the taste of the first cupcakes, hot out of the oven, was fantastic!
I think that this recipe is a definite for Christmastime, with the cinnamon evoking definite festive memories! And it had a thumbs up from Hubby, Handsome and Cheeky, so I think they’ll be happy enough with a repeat of this creation!
