I just wrote the recipe out from scratch and then my daughter leaned on the mouse and closed the tab!! Ah, frustrating to say the least!

Christmas_mama
10-24-2011, 05:00 PM
You'll need:

175g caster sugar
A large egg (or two medium/small eggs)
85g butter
75ml milk
125g self-raising flour (or plain flour and use a raising powder)
About a tablespoon of ground cinnamon
A large cooking apple, peeled and thinly sliced.

Start by peeling the apple and slicing into roughly mm thick slices. Pop them to one side and measure out your caster sugar. Pre-heat your oven to 220c and line a rectangle baking tin (like a small bread tin) with greaseproof paper.

Put your sugar and egg into a mixing bowl and use and electric whisk to mix them for 5 minutes (or until really, really thick - like mousse). If you don't have an electric whisk, I'm afraid you'll be there for a very long time!

Melt the butter in a saucepan with the milk and then add to the sugar and egg. Add a generous spinkling of cinnamon and then whisk together. Measure out your flour and then sift into the mixture (along with baking powder if you're not using self-raising). Gently whisk together until there are no lumps.

Pour half of your mixture into your prepared tin and then add half of the apple slices to the top of that. Sprinkle with a little caster sugar and cinnamon. Add the rest of your mixture, and lay the rest of your apple slices to the top of your cake mix. Add one final sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon and put your cake into your pre-heated oven. Bake for 15 minutes at 220c and then turn the temperature of your oven down to 180c and bake for a further 20 minutes.

Use a knife to check that the cake is cooked throughout. Once your cake is finished baking, remove the cake in the greaseproof paper and stand on a cooling rack until cool. Once your cake has cooled down, gently peel away the greaseproof paper, using a knife if neccessary to separate the cake from the paper. Slide the cake onto your plate and it's ready to cut and serve :christmasdinner:

Yams and sweet potatoes are often used interchangeably - that is how similar in taste they are. I always call sweet potatoes - sweet potatoes and call yams -yams! I think most Americans call them by the proper name! I think that yams have become much more available than sweet potatoes so you hear about them more often.

It looks delicious! Have you ever made sweet potato pie? Looks similar to a pumpkin pie (a little more yellowish in color). I've never tasted one. Very popular in the African-Anerican culture.

I think most Americans call them by the proper name! I think that yams have become much more available than sweet potatoes so you hear about them more often.

I didn't realise you actually had real yams in America! I did a little google after I posted asking and found this:


Candied yams aren’t really made with yams. In fact, all of our familiar American yam dishes are made with sweet potatoes. The darker orange, sweeter, moist varieties of sweet potato tend to be called yams in the U.S. while the more pale (white or yellow), firm & mealy, less-sweet ones are referred to as sweet potatoes. Most Americans have never even seen a true yam.

What’s a yam if not a type of sweet potato?

True yams come from Africa and go by the botanical name: Dioscorea. The name yam derives from the word nyami, also meaning to eat. Yams are starchy tubers; but only distant relatives of potatoes and unrelated to sweet potatoes—members of the morning glory family. The skin of a true yam is rough like bark, and can be poisonous if eaten raw.

So why do Americans call orange sweet potatoes yams?

In colonial Virgina (including North Carolina, the state that leads the US in sweet potato production), farmers took to calling the paler varieties of Ipomoea batatas sweet potatoes. African slaves in the colony used the word nyami to describe orange sweet potatoes, which bear some resemblance (but no relation) to true yams. Use of the abbreviated African word yam became widespread to differentiate sweet potatoes by color. The name yam has stuck for over 300 years, commonly used to describe the tastiest and most nutritious varieties of sweet potato to thrive on this continent.

So - I guess there are two kinds of sweet potatoes and we differentiate them by color as yams or sweet ootatoes! I never knew that, just knew they were different! I guess we have the colonial slaves to blame for this!

And here's another interesting yam fact: Did you know that eating a lot of real yams (not sweet potatos) can cause hyperovulation in women? Which is why there are greater numbers of multiple pregnancies in countries where Yams are a large part of the diet, such as Africa :elf3:
