Mini Apple-Apricot Bundt Cakes





This is one dessert preparation where I was tentative in it's initial stage. However as I followed the baking instructions by it's true letter and spirit, they turned out as per my expectation. The pictures are here for all of us to see. More so, as soon as I went for shower for 10 minutes, 4 of these cakes were gobbled up by my little one and hubby. 




Anticipating this I had kept aside few more of these cakes, which saved the day and I could treat my friends. they too loved this. So boosted by their compliments, I am posting this for your viewing and feedback.


Recipe adapted from here
Ingredients:
1 cup diced Apples without skin
3 tablespoons unsalted Butter
3/4 cup granulated Sugar
1/4 cup dried Apricots (cut into pieces)
1 large Egg
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup All purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cups Walnuts


Method:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a 12 cup bundt pan or if using Wilton's individual bundt pans then you would need 10 such pieces. Cream butter and sugar together until the texture becomes pale and fluffy, for about 2 minutes. Add the egg, beat well and then beat in vanilla. Sift together all the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together in another bowl. Reduce the speed of hand blender to low and add half of the flour and little milk. Mix until just blended. Then again add remaining milk, flour and mix until smooth. Add the apples, apricots and chopped walnuts to the batter.




 Slowly pour the batter in one corner of the pan and allow the batter to spread in and around the bundt pan by tilting slightly. Now to avoid the air bubbles, gently tap the filled pans on the kitchen slab few times. 




Bake until cake is springy to the touch and test by a toothpick inserting in the center, 15-16 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes. Invert on a plate and check if it is cool completely. Drizzle the top with melted chocolate, chocolate shaves and serve them with love !!
