I have to state one thing in the beginning of this post. I don’t like baking. It’s convoluted, prone to error (at least in my case) and bad for one’s figure. However, the other day I caught myself standing in Michael’s, admiring Halloween cupcake cups and contemplating cupcakes. Whoa, that’s what having children does to you! Still, it took me about two weeks to finally get around to baking this cake. I think I baked it last about 20 years ago, when I was still a student back home in the former Soviet Union. In Russian it’s called Sharlotka – Charlotte, and it’s the fastest cake ever:
1. Blend 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of flour and 3 eggs
2. Cut two Granny Smith apples.
3. Pour batter over apples and bake for 15 minutes.
As you can see, Anna was helping very enthusiastically and couldn’t wait for it to get ready and cool down. Then she didn’t want any apples in the cake. Oh well, at least the rest of us enjoyed it (and I won’t mention that that nice crust cracked as soon as the cake cooled down). Now I am thinking that maybe I can manage baking something once a month, and next month it will be something Halloweenish.
