Eggless Butter Cake with Sliced apples and Crunchy topping :)

Dear Friends

Boo!!! Happy Halloween Day :) Am sorry for the much delay for not posting my recipe for Eggless  baking Challenge  Group # 2 by gayathri. My kid is so happy by wearing Witch costume and my carved pumpkin witch  :)It is so fun. Am so happy as my kid is happy :) I am trying to use eggless recipes as i have tried  some and it came out well by using homemade curd.It adds to the taste and good for vegan peoples :)

It was Butter Cake selected by gayathri and It was awesome,simple,buttery flavor and an aromatic smell of cinnamon to it  :)  Here is the recipe as I made few changes as I reduced from 3 eggs to 1 egg and substitute with curd and baking soda. It was taste.I want to add fruit to it :) because apple gives best combination along with cinnamon and raisins :)
You can follow the recipe adapted here

Preparation Time-30 minutes
Cooking Time-15-20 minutes
Oven Temp-170C / 325F

Butter-2/3 cup / 160gm
Caster Sugar-1/2 cup / 115gm
Eggs-3 large
All Purpose Flour-1 2/3 cups / 210 gm
Baking Powder-2 tsp
Sultanas/ Golden Raisins-1/2 cup / 60 gm
Milk-1 tbs
For Topping :
Light Brown Sugar- 2 tbs
Cinnamon-1/ tsp

Note : I have made some changes and reduce to half. You can do follow my recipe or above recipe.

Dry Ingredients :

  • 1 cup All purpose Flour
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
To Make Butter Cake batter :
  • 1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter( Room Temperature)
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Curd
  • A Pinch of Baking Soda
  • 1/3 Cup Milk
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Cup Sliced Apples 
For Topping
  • 3 Tablespoons Cold Unsalted Butter cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 cup Light Brown sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup raisins
Note: For the topping I reduced to half because I used it accordingly for my small fluted mini pan.You can use the same as above if you are using normal 6 or 7 inch round pan.

Method :

  • Line a parchment paper on your choice of round pan or fluted pan or mini pan & muffin cup.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 F 
  • Add all the ingredients given under the Topping. If you prefer add the toppings after the cake is baked.then you take raisins alone  and add to the batter by folding it and bake it.
  • If you prefer the toppings added to the unbaked cake then go for it and bake (Am using that way as you can see the picture as above )
  • Whisk the dry ingredients together.
  • Add baking soda to the curd and mix well.Keep aside.
  • Using an electric mixer or hand mixer,Beat the butter until it is creamy, Add sugar to it until it is well combined.
  • Add curd mixture to it.
  • Add vanilla extract and beat well until it is well incorporated.
  • Add the flour mixture into 3 additions by adding milk little until it is well incorporated.
  • Transfer into the baking pan. Make it even by using an offset spatula.
  • Keep the sliced apples on the top of the butter cake evenly.Or you can omit by adding apples.
  • Sprinkle the topping mixture on the top of the apple slices evenly before baking. If you prefer add the toppings then sprinkle the toppings on the hot butter cake once it is baked.
  • Bake it for about 20 minutes because my pan is small it varies. Normally if using normal pan it ll take around 30 to 35 minutes.or until the tooth pick comes out clean.
  • Allow it to cool on the cooling rack.
  • Serve it warm along with a dollop of icecream  of your choice or whipped cream :)
Enjoy :)

Happy Baking :)
