French apple cake


This French apple cake is OK for a vegetarian, not for a vegan one.


1 lb apple (cooking apples, cored and chopped)
1 c flour (self raising flour)
1 1⁄6 c sugar (superfine sugar, 2/3 cup for cake, 1/2 cup for topping)
6 T milk (soy milk for a vegetarian recipe)
4 T butter (melted, or vegetable oil)

  3. Place flour, baking powder, 2/3 cups sugar, milk, butter, nutmeg, and 2 eggs into a food processor. Beat until smooth.
  4. Pour the smooth batter over the apples, use the back of a spoon to smooth out the top, bake for 40-45 minutes. It should be a light golden color.
