Afternoon Tea, apple and cinnamon cake:
I made a variation on the cake I had planned to make as I had some apples that needed using up. So lemon drizzle cake turned into apple and cinnamon cake instead.
I rather generously gave half of this to our friend. The problem with making cakes, even if they are small, is that they need to eaten!!!!
Apparently there is a problem with baking at altitude, cakes have trouble rising, all to do with liquids and temperatures, but I haven’t encountered any problems yet, but I suppose that is because up until now I have only made brownies, cookies and crumble to avoid this problem plus I have’nt got a cake tin!!! One odd thing is that you can’t buy baking powder here but having done some research I have found that you can buy special cake flour, farine de gateaux, so this is what I bought and used and it was perfect, I assume it already has baking powder in it.
