Apple Iceberg

Siting out in garden on a cold sunny morning with my Apple iceberg, JUST PERFECT.. Can't stop sharing this recipe as I am falling in for this delicious yet simple recipe. Simplicity at its best. Loved by all in my family  and always a hit in any dinner/ lunch party. I came up with the idea years back when my Granny smith apples were getting old keeping in the refrigerator. Its a cake based dessert, apple is tossed with hung curd & walnut and served with plain vanilla sponge cake. Here goes the recipe.

Ingredient:

Vanilla sponge cake:          200gm ( You can buy ready made)

Or else make it at home:

Flour:                                1 cups
Powdered Sugar:               1/2 cup
Oil:                                    1/2 cup
Eggs:                                  2 large
Baking powder:                  1 tsp
Vanilla Essence:                  1/2 tsp
Hung Curd/Greek Curd :     4tsp
Brown Sugar:                      2tsp
Granny Smith apple:            1 Small ( Cut in very small cubes)
Walnut:                               1/4 cup

Method:

1)For cake:
Sieve flour and  baking powder twice. Beat eggs till almost 3 times in volume. Add essence and sugar and beat again till mixture is frothy . Pour in the oil slowly beating all the while.  Fold the flour mixture gently into the egg mixture. Pour into a greased tin lined with butter paper. Or use you favorite mold. Bake at 180 degrees for about 25-30 minutes in an oven or 3-4 mins in a Microwave. Cool it down and keep aside. You can use a eggless cake also.

2) Dice the apple, add curd brown sugar and walnut. Don't ground the sugar use it whole.
3) Take a serving dish and place your cake and top it over with apple yogurt. You can use a cappuccino serving glass fill  it half with broken cake and top it up with apple yogurt.
4) Sprinkle some walnut on top and dig in to enjoy your scrumptious creation.

BON APPETIT...
