Sweet Apple and Ginger Corn Bread / Slatka kukuruzna zlevanka sa jabukama i đumbirom

Since I liked a lot how my savory cheese and spinach cornbread recipe turned out, I naturally decided to take the sweet route and make a cornbread with apples. Because one can never have too many cakes in their arsenal.A good measure of dried ginger added a nice kick to it and I also find the apple and ginger combo really interesting and refreshing. If you are an apple lover and a cornbread lover, this simple cake is just the thing for you.

METHOD:

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Grease a square baking pan and line it with parchment paper, then set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and ginger. Stir in the eggs, sour cream and milk, then finally fold in the melted butter. Transfer the batter to a prepared baking pan. Gently shake to even out.

Peel, core and thinly slice the apples. Arrange the apple slices on top of the batter, then sprinkle generously with sugar and cinnamon. Bake for 40-50 minutes, until the apples are golden and caramelized and a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow the cornbread to cool for about ten minutes before slicing and serving.

Pošto mi se jako dopalo kako mi je ispala slana zlevanka sa sirom i špinatom, naravno da sam se odlučila okušati i sa slatkim stvarima i ispeći zlevanku sa jabukama. Jer ne možete nikada imati previše kolača u svojem arsenalu. Dobra količina sušenog đumbira dala je dašak zanimljivog okusa, a meni je osobno također kombinacija jabuka i đumbira baš odlična i osvježavajuća. Ako volite jabuke i volite kukuruzne zlevanke, ovaj jednostavni kolač je baš za vas.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 12 komada / 2,03 kn po komadu / 24,37 kn za sve)

Za smjesu:

1 i ½ šalica kukuruznog brašna (0,75 kn)

½ šalice glatkog brašna (0,25 kn)

½ šalice šećera (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,01 kn)

1 žličica cimeta (0,50 kn)

1 žličica đumbira u prahu (0,50 kn)

3 jaja (4,50 kn)

1 šalica kiselog vrhnja (4,00 kn)

1 šalica mlijeka (2,50 kn)

4 žlice maslaca, rastopljene (4,00 kn)

Za jabuke:

4-5 jabuka (6,00 kn)

3 žlice šećera (0,15 kn)

1 žličica cimeta (0,50 kn)

Dodatno:

Ulje za namastiti protvan (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Namastite pravokutni protvan i obložite ga papirom za pečenje, pa ga stavite na stranu. U velikoj zdjeli pomiješajte oba brašna, šećer, sol, prašak za pecivo, sodu bikarbonu, cimet i đumbir. Dodajte unutra jaja, kiselo vrhnje i mlijeko, pa na kraju umiješajte rastopljeni maslac. Nježno protresite protvan da se sve poravna.

Ogulite, čistite od sjemenki i tanko narežite jabuke. Kriške jabuka poslažite po kolaču, pa posipajte sa cimetom i šećerom. Pecite 40-50 minuta, dok jabuke ne budu zlatne i karamelizirane, a testni štapić koji upiknete ne izađe čist. Pustite da se zlevanka ohladi desetak minuta prije nego ju narežete i poslužite.
