2 Medium apples* (245g), peeled and cored and sliced into 1/4 inch pieces (about 8 per apple)
1.5 Cups All Purpose flour
1.5 cups sugar
1/2Cup(one stick) unsalted butter (softened)
1 egg white
1 tspbaking soda
2 tspground cinnamon
1 tspvanilla extract
3/4Cuppecan halves, toasted then chopped (optional)
1/4Cuppassion fruit puree
Preheat oven to 350.
Put apple slices into a microwave safe bowl, cover and microwave on high for 3 minutes and 45 seconds. Apples should be very soft. Add to mixing bowl with pumpkin puree and mix until smooth and combined.
Add all ingredients except pecans and mix until completely combined. Add pecans and stir to combine. Pour into an 8x8 baking pan (we use parchment and Baker’s Joy under) and bake for 35-45 minutes until a toothpick poked into the middle comes out clean.
Remove from pan, rest for 20 min, remove from pan and let cool completely, then frost (see below).
*Favorite apples – depending on your taste of course – are Braeburn, Granny Smith and Gala. But do whatever you want. And if you can go pick your own…use them!!!
In a mixing bowl, add passion fruit puree and heavy cream. Beat on high with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form (approximately 2 min).
Add mascarpone, confectioners sugar, and vanilla extract.
Mix on low until just combined. Be careful to not over beat the cream or it will begin to separate.
Keep frosting in fridge until the cake is completely cool. Frost and serve.
