On Rakhi my brother, Sister along with their family was supposed to come. After baking a good lot of choco chip muffins, I decided to make a plain vanilla pound cake. Unfortunately I ran out of flour, and left with only one egg.. I had already started combining butter and sugar with canola oil by then. without any delay immediately went to refrigerator, I found some apples, though you will find them always in my refrigerator; I follow the saying religiously ‘an apple a day keeps doctor away’ and that’s how I decided to make something with them and the result is this Apple Walnut Mini Bran Loaf Cake 🙂

This cake is very simple and easy to make, why I have used Mini in the name is because of less ingredients, I could only make a mini loaf and two cupcakes out of the batter 🙂 so see there is a reason behind the name (laughs!). This cake is moist and has bread like texture and making it in a loaf tin was a brilliant Idea.Well there is again a reason behind baking this in a loaf tin. I bought this cute little yellow loaf tin from Home centre and wanted to use it desperately (EEeee) so what better way I could think then using it here to make this yumilicious Apple Walnut Mini Bran Loaf Cake.
