I just love cute little cakes. Cakes in miniature size can make a person feel special. It's like you're getting a whole cake to yourself. Diana got me these fancy little paper cups from Japan and I thought I should use it for these cakes.
185 grm butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 ½ cup self-raising flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup (80ml) milk
2 apples (any kind, I used granny smith)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare some paper cups of 8 mini cake pans. Grease 8 mini loaf pans (greased with some butter) Peel and coarsely grate the apple. Mix it with the lemon juice to prevent it from turning brown.
2. Beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time until well combined.
3. Fold in the flours, cinnamon and milk until well combined.
4. Fold in the apples. Divide batter among the cups or pans. Smooth the surface. Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Leave in pans for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
