Apple Honey Cake



Apple Honey Cake

Apple and honey cake is a simple no fuss cake, sweet and dense and is perfect fall dessert. You can also add nuts and raisins and serve it as a tea cake. I wanted to make it a little extra special, so I used a rich and dark chocolate ganache.

Ingredients
Cake flour- 3 cup
Baking powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Baking soda- 1/2 tsp
Salt- 1/2 tsp
Honey- 1 cup
Apple sauce- 3/4 cup
Egg- 3
Vegetable oil- 1/2 cup
Cinnamon powder- 1/2 tsp
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp

For the frosting
Dark chocolate- 4 ounce
Heavy cream- 1/2 cup



Pre heat oven to 350 degree F. Prepare cake tin. Grease and dust with flour and set aside.
Mix oil and honey and apple sauce and set aside. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder and salt.
In a large mixing bowl beat egg for three to four minutes in high speed till it is light and fluffy and doubles in volume. Add vanilla essence and half of the dry ingredients ( flour) and fold in. Add oil and honey mixture and the rest of the flour and gently fold in. Pour this into prepared cake tin and bake for 35- 40 minutes or till the tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan for ten minutes and run a knife along the edges to loosen the cake. Transfer to wire rack and allow to cool.
To make the chocolate ganache take 4 ounces of finely chopped dark chocolate or semi sweet chocolate in a heat proof bowl. Heat 1/2 cup of whipping  cream until it is almost boiling and then pour it over the chocolate. Allow it to stand for a minute or two Stir until smooth allow it to cool down a bit and pour over the cake. If you want it in a spreading consistency cool down completely and allow it to thicken it a bit.
Enjoy!
