I often need something sweet, something different, but it also has to be easy and quick. This time I had an apple and baking powder (I always try to have baking powder but a mix of baking soda and lemon juice do the work perfectly as well). The remaining ingredients are just basics.
Positive: It’s like eating a mini apple cake really but so much faster to bake! Sweet, fluffy. Perfect for breakfast or tea time.
Negative: Nothing. I love them!
- 1 apple
- 8 g baking powder
In your pantry:
- 200 g flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar (I used brown sugar)
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 5 cl sunflower oil
Peel and core apple. Cut into small dice.
Place apple dice in a hot pan with 2-3 spoons of water and cook for a few minutes until apple pieces are tender. Or you can skip that part and keep your apple raw or grate it!
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda and a pinch of salt.
Add oil and honey. Mix well.
Add apple pieces and stir.
Prepare a baking tray covering it with parchment paper.
Using two tablespoons drop some of the mixture on the baking tray to make small balls.
Bake in preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes at 180°C.
Allow to cool and enjoy!
My advice: It’s actually a great base to try many versions. The second time I made them I added some cinnamon while cooking the apple and 20 g of coconut powder in the mixture… Yumm!
You could also try with different fresh fruits, dry fruits, nuts or chocolate chips.
