How was the cake? Good? How about the sour cream brunch cake?

Gina, in method no. 2 - is that supposed to be brown sugar or orange sugar?

Can we substitute the orange sugar? Dunno whether we can get orange sugar here in Malaysia.

Do we have any recipe for applesauce here in KC?

I substituted it for orange sugar to make it orange. The original recipe uses Brown sugar only. I guess, while typing this, I slipped up at the Methods.

As for Applesauce, the MW cookbook also teaches you how to make your own. But I didn't use the recipe. I bought a can of Applesauce from the supermarket



about the cake..everyone loved it. Orange sugar makes the cake extra fragrant and not so sweet. the cake was heavy.

the orange sugar is the type used for dipping with Huat kueh.. Wink

Thanks Gina. Will look out for the orange sugar. Hopefully they have it here at the baking supplies shops. No supermarket carried this item.

Alannia,I have made this applesauce a few times to go with ham at Christmas,fried pork chops...and to stir into fruit cake batter and even apple sorbet! coffee
My cousin's 2 year old daughter likes to eat it with oats and just on its own.
You can halve this recipe.

YOU NEED:
3 pounds mixed apples, i.e. red and green,or use all green if you want...skinned, cored and quartered
1/2 cup water
3/4 to 1 cup sugar, to taste
Juice of half a lemon
2 teaspoons cinnamon, optional

In a large saucepan combine the apples, 1/2 cup water and sugar, bring the liquid to a boil, and simmer the mixture, stirring occasionally and breaking up the apples, for 20 minutes. When the apples are tender and the mixture is the consistency of a chunky puree pass the apples through a processor and return to the saucepan. Simmer the applesauce, gently, for an additional 5 to 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Adjust seasoning with lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon. Serve the applesauce warm or chilled.

Here is mine. I used brown sugar and baked the cakes instead of using the MW. Result is a moist cake, without a crust like usual baked cakes. Probably because of the applesauce.

1. Can i follow the timing and temperature stated in recipe while baking?

2. But if i follow, the top part tends to burn... :(

The other day I baked a pound cake... Gosh, the cake was so dry and tough... :(

Hope you can help me...
