During the dreary days of monsoon one feels like tucking into hearty and warming food. And there is nothing like adrak to heat up ones waterlogged and flagging spirits . Put small chunks of ginger in chai and boil away till the tannins from the tea leaves make the spoon stand upright in the cup .

And then cut yourself a thick slice of this delicious moist bread made with Soonth ( ginger powder ) and Kakvi ( sugar cane treacle ).

Ingredients

225 gms of chopped tart, greenish apples/ About 2 apples

1 tbs water

2 tbs ground sugar

 

85 gms butter

60 gms light brown sugar

2 tbs Kakvi.(sugar cane treacle)

1 egg

 

225 gms maida ( white flour)

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp dalchini (cinnamon powder)

1 tsp soonth ( dried ginger powder)

Method

Heat your OTG or oven till 180 degrees.

  1. Cover and boil the apples with the sugar and water till soft. Mash well and set aside till cool .
  2.  Melt the butter with the Kakvii and brown sugar. Cool a little and add the egg and whisk till mixed.
  3. Add the cooled apple mash and stir.
  4.  Mix all the dry ingredients, the flour, baking powder, ginger and cinnamon.
  5. Mix the dry ingredients into the butter and apple mixture. Stir till smooth.
  6. Spoon into greased loaf /tube tin. 7. Cook in 180 degree oven for 40-45 minutes. Check by inserting a fork into the loaf. it should come out clean. Remove and cool in the tin for a few minutes before turning out.
  7. You can sift some caster sugar on top or make a ginger icing sugar to prettify the bread. I just like to eat it plain.
  8. Certainly brightens up a rainy day!!
