Apple cake - Attempt No.1



Out of sudden I am very interested in cooking and baking.
I found a very useful book in the library How to feed your whole family by Gill Holcombe (ISBN 978-1-905862-15-3).

The book introduced cooking and baking using simple, inexpensive and healthy approach.

My first attempt to bake an apple cake had failed, although I think the pictures were nicely taken. The outside is like biscuit but the inside is not even cooked!

So were the few first-attempts to bake a simple cheese biscuit (without cheese taste), courgette scones (plain flour taste and has nothing resemblance of a scone), mixed fruits muffins (oddly shaped and looks more like small cakes than muffins, and taste neither like one).

I should have taken the pictures of those.

Paon said it seems that I have higher success rate in cooking than in baking. I cannot agree more.

P/S: I wanted to cook local meals using local ingredients, because I find it difficult to prepare my home country dishes using local ingredients... and eating is one of the many ways to experience the lifestyle here...locally.
