Little Steamed Apple Cakes

Looking for a delicious healthy snack for the kids I combined a few different recipes to give the humble apple tea cake a bit of a twist.

We always give our fruit and vegetables and good wash before using. Today I soaked the apples in a vinegar-water mix before using. A great tip I picked up from my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. Such an easy extra process to ensure fruit and vegetables are clean and stay fresh for longer.

I decided to steam these little cakes to make them moist. I baked them in the oven for 10 minutes after they were cooked for a golden top. The kids said they tasted delicious and told me I should make them again. Next time I will bake them in muffin tins in the oven for 20-30 minutes. I’ll also substitute rice malt syrup for honey and lemon juice for vanilla extract for something different.
