Double Apple budnt cake and Click

I never like to miss a click, but this time I had no idea what to send them. I have seen so much beautiful click lately and now the dedline is there I thought I will send my cake picture which is on a wooden plank.
If you want to join up you can find the details here

Now to the recipe.
I bought this wonderful Baking book calle Baking from my home to yours Doriee Greenspan if you don't have this book I will recomd to buy the book as all the recipe in the book is so good and they she has explained it so good that even someone who just started to baking would love this book. There is so many wonderful delicious recipe in this book that i have been reading day and night :-)

Ingridients:
2 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinamon
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 stick butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup store bought apple butter ( we don't get here so i made mine) using this recipe from simple recipe
2 medium apples, peeled cored and grated
1 cup pecan or walnuts chopped
1/2 cup raisins

For the icing
1/3 cup confectinoers sugar
2 tbsp of orange or leamon juice.
I used double the portion of iving as i like a thick layer of icing.


My Click Wood

Center a rack in the oven and prehat the oven to 350° F.
Butter a 9 to 10 inch budnt pan and dust the inside with flour.

Whisk together the flour, the baking powder, soda, spices and salt.
In a large bowl beat the egg and sugar in medium speed, scarping the bowl as needed for 3 minutes or untill the mixture is smoothe creamy and pale. Add the eggs one at a time beating for 1 minute after each addition. You'll have a light fluffy batter. Reduce the mixer speed and beat in the apple butter, don't worry if it cirdles the batter. Still on low add the grated apples and mix to completley blend. Add the dry indridients, mixing only untill they disapear into the batter.
Using a spatula, fold in the nuts and the raisins.

Turn the batter into the budnt pan and smooth the top of the batter with the sptaula.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or untill a think knife is inserted deep into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Tranfer the pan to a rackand cool for 5 minutes before unmoulding the cake and cooling the cake to room temperatire..
If possible , once the cake is cool wrap well in a plastic and let it stand overnight at toom temperatue to ripen the flavours.
If you are not doing the icing you can dust the cake with sugar before serving.

To make the icing.
Put the sugar in a bowl and stir in the orange.leamon juice.
Keep adding the juice a little at time untill you have an icing that falls easily from the tip or a spoon.
Drizzle the icing over the top of the cake, letting it slide over the curves of the cake. Let the cake stands intill the icing dries.
Sloce and serve with a cup of coffee or tea :-) and enjoy.
