Apple cake Ingredients


Ingredients (for a 24 cm/9 inch cake pan)


Apple cake

  • In a mixing bowl, mix together the butter and eggs, and then add the sugar and the vanilla stick (if you have some). Or, use a food processor to mix everything together.
  • Sift the flour and the baking powder into the mixing bowl.
  • Add a pinch of salt and some milk (half).
  • Then whilst it’s mixing, add the remainder of the milk.
  • Pour the mixture into the baking pan.
  • Take the apple and cut it in half, making sure to remove the seeds. Then, cut the apple into thin slices.
  • Place them in a radius design leaving the center clear.
  • Cut the apple into even thinner slices and place them in the center of the baking pan and create a flower. You can either sprinkle brown sugar on top before baking or after (like we did).
  • Bake in the oven at 180°C /350°F for 50 mins.
  • Serve and enjoy!
