Butter at the End Apple Black Tea Pound Cake

Butter at the End Apple Black Tea Pound Cake

This can be made with one bowl. The melted butter is added at the end, so that there is no need for an electric mixer. The tartness of the apple is really nice.

Ingredients: 2 18cm pound cake pan

Eggs
3
Sugar
150 g
Apple
1
Lemon juice
A small amount
Black tea (tea bag)
1
Rum (or brandy)
2 tablespoons
○Cake flour
150 g
○Baking powder
1 teaspoon

150 g

Steps

1. Bring the eggs and apple to room temperature. Shift the ○ ingredients. Cut the apple into 1 cm cubes and coat with lemon juice. Melt butter in a double boiler.

3. Preheat the oven to 340°F/170℃.
4. Add the tea, rum, and apple, then pour in melted butter at the end. The butter tends to sink to the bottom, so mix from the bottom.

Story Behind this Recipe

I bought a lot of apples since they were in season. They were ripe and I wanted to use them. I had butter, so I made pound cakes.
