So armed with my own instructions I began a 10 day ritual of following the rules and started with this mixture -
It doesn't look alot but once it is stirred everyday, the mixture rises and bubbles, and then covered with a loose tea towel. By the fourth day, I had to add a cup each of milk, flour and sugar and then carry on stirring everyday until the ninth day where I had to repeat day four. I then had to split the mixture into four so that I could pass it on to three other friends and keep the fourth for myself.
On day ten, it was time to start making the cake! I had to add cooking apples, flour, baking powder, vanilla essence, cooking oil, and sugar to a baking tin. I was also supposed to add raisins, which I chose not to use, and cinnamon, which I could not find in the supermarket! This mixture was stirred and I was a little apprehensive as I was not sure if I was doing it right!
Once in the oven for 45 minutes I could relax because it appeared to be rising and cooking nicely!
The first picture on this post is the finished result and I was very chuffed with myself for completing the challenge successfully! As for the taste of it, it was very sweet, just how I like it. It appeared dry but the apples made it moist but still tempting to add some ice cream!
