Theologian’s apple crumb cake

Maybe the first word of this blog’s title is a bit of a stretch to make it fit the “Theology in Overalls” theme. Truth be told, there’s nothing original (or sinful) about my cake. You can find the recipe over at Amateur Gourmet.

On second thought, there is something a tad original about it.

I had just put it in the oven to bake for the prescribed 30-35 minutes when (horror of horrors) I realized a small detail: I had forgotten to add the 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder. Amy informed me in no uncertain terms that cake needs baking powder to rise. Time to get creative!

Turns out this white stuff is pretty important when baking. Who would have thunk it?

Out of the oven came the pan, and I dumped the whole thing (wondrous crumbly/buttery topping and all) into a large mixing bowl. Into the mix went the forgotten white magic from Royal, then back into the fiery furnace.

Thirty minutes later, tuh-dah! Here’s the result:

Crumb cake, sans topping (it's hiding inside)

Serve with Five Roses tea (milk and sugar, please) and other than the missing topping, not bad, if I say so myself.
