I hope you’re not thinking “Not another cake!” because I will never tire of cakes. Plus, I haven’t used sour cream in cakes before, so this is a first for me. As you can see from the recipe, simplest cake ever. I haven’t done this yet, but I’d imagine it’ll be perfect for morning or afternoon tea. If only I could do that everyday!

1/2 cup plain flour
1 1/4 SR flour
1 cup sugar (I used raw sugar)

1 cup sour cream
2 eggs (lightly beaten)

Hello friends! It has been such a long time since my last post. But lately, I have been doing some weekly baking and I am so excited to share this with you.

I have long been an avid reader of Smitten Kitchen. Some how, Deb is able to make me feel like making whatever she is writing about RIGHT THIS MOMENT, even if it involves Banana bread crepe butterscotch pancakes 8am in the morning. 

A recipe that caught my eye was her recipe for Apple Sharlotka, which is a Russian apple cake. Don’t be intimidated by the Russian heritage – there is nothing foreign about the process. It was unbelievably simple and delicious. Dare I add healthy to the list, as it doesn’t contain any butter? 

You may notice that the top of her cake is all knobbly with apples, while mine is quite smooth. This effect will depend on whether you pat the batter down into the tin. As you can see, I forgot, but luckily, no harm done.

Here is her recipe.

Apologies for the teeny picture – it was taken with my HTC Explorer. I should have believed the reviewer when they said that the quality of the photos is not as good as other smart phones. Galaxy S III here I come!
