I am just back from Italy! We have been having beautiful warm sunny days and I feel kind of "restored" for it.
I have taken many photographs which I will be sharing over the next few weeks. It has been good seeing my two sisters, my parents and cousins. When I am over there I realize how much I really miss living closer to them. I love all those big family dinners with lots of food with the children happily roaming around. Sometimes I do wish I was still living in Italy.
My children have been praticing their Italian and with my daughter being so keen to talk and read in Italian I decided to start proper Italian lessons once a week for both my children and for my husband too. If you study the basis of the Italian grammar it becomes much easier to write and speak the language. I will let you know how we get on.
Whilst in Italy I sort of invade my mum's kitchen and we do clash sometimes! Quite rightly she is jealous of her own kitchen. I made this sugar and fat free apple cake which was polished off very quickly.
I am now going back to unpacking, cleaning and going food shopping... always lots to do when you are back from holiday!
- Prep Time : 20 minutes
- Cook Time : 45 minutes
Mix the eggs with the honey. Add the sifted flour and the salt. Mix well then add a splash of milk enough to make a runny mixture.
We made this cake outside on my mum's terrace. We have been having such wonderful autumn days with plenty of glorious sunshine I hope this is going to last for a little longer.
Peel the apples, cut them into thin slices and add them to the mixture. Mix well.
Pour onto a rectangular baking tray measuring approx 35cm x 24cm or 13¾" x 9½" covered with parchment paper. Level well place the sultanas on top and cook at 200C or 390F for about 45 minutes or until golden on top but I recommend checking with a toothpick after 30 minutes.
