My grandmother always cooked for the whole family, but she never liked it.
She did it for us and in her way she showed us her love for us.
She had a strange name, she was born into a poor family, she had lost her mother when she was still a child and she always thought she would die at 46.
She died at 86.
I'm just wondering now if she was happy in her life, if she lived the life she wanted, if she wanted to do something she never dared to do.
Nobody can answer these questions anymore.
The recipes I associate most with my grandmother are: fried cutlets with peas (no comment) and her famous apple pie.
I was inspired by her for this recipe, her recipe included many apples and very little pasta.
This cake is sweetened with raisins and apples only and has no added refined sugars.
If you prepare it in the cold season, melt the coconut oil in a double boiler.
If you prefer, you can replace wholemeal flour with type 2 flour.
If you want to decorate the surface of the cake, count 2 more apples, the cake will be more humid.
Psyllium if you are not used to using it you can avoid putting it.
250g of wholemeal flour
4 tablespoons of coconut oil
100 g of raisins
2 medium apples + 2 apples if you want to decorate the surface.
300 ml of vegetable drink (oats in my case)
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
½ sachet of natural yeast
1 teaspoon of psyllium
Pour the coconut oil into a bowl and add the flours. Continuing to mix the oat milk a little at a time.
When the mixture is homogeneous also the raisins, yeast and cinnamon, always stirring. Cut the apples into small pieces, gradually add them to the mixture and pour it into a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
If, like me, you want to decorate with apples on the surface, peel the apples and cut them into slices, arranging them in a radial pattern, in doing so the cake will be more humid.
Bake in the oven at 160 ° in static mode until the surface is golden (in my oven 30/35 minutes).
Below I show you what it would be like without the apple decoration.
