Apple coconut cake made from old bread
Some of you surely know that problem: Throwing away food is an absolute no-go. And it hurts even more when you have prepared the food yourself. No matter if cooked or baked. That is exactly how we felt about all the old bread. Hence, bread which has become too hard for eating it, but which was still too good to throw away. Therefore, we made some experiments for a while and finally came to a cake recipe with old bread. Even our bakers (who are really very particular when it comes to their bread) liked this cake! That is why we want to show you the recipe now!
• 500g whole grain bread (e.g. Vitamin B)
• ½ litre coconut milk
• 100g + 8 tbsp. of sugar
• 6 eggs (whereof 3 egg whites)
• 1 package of baking powder
• 5 tbsp. of flour
• 200g almond slivers
• 4 apples
• A dash of rum
And this is how you do it:
Cut the Vitamin B bread into small pieces, put them into a bowl and fully cover it with the coconut milk. Let the bread soak for about 30 minutes. Stir from time to time.
Peel the apples and cut them into quarters. Heat up half of the almond slivers in a small pan until they are golden brown. Put the roasted almond slivers into a bowl and add the apples. Add the dash of rum, 3 tablespoonful of sugar and cinnamon for the flavour. Leave to stand for about 15 minutes and stir occasionally.
Press out the soaked bread and pour off the remaining coconut milk. Chop the remaining almond slivers and add them to the bread. Then add 3 eggs, 4 tablespoonful of sugar, baking powder and 3-5 tablespoonful of flour and stir well until the dough has a texture of a solid mash.
Lubricate a springform pan with butter and pour half of the dough into the pan. Put the apples with the almond slivers on top of it and press them gently into the dough. Then pour the remaining dough on top it.
Bake the cake for 40 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 175°C at medium level.
