apple cake recipe

Recipe: Apple Cake

This is a great recipe for using up apples a little past their best. Great on its own or served with custard as a pudding.


175g caster sugar

2 eggs

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

85g butter

75ml whole milk

125g plain flour

2 Tbsp baking powder

2 apples


Mix the eggs and caster sugar together really well. Warm the milk and the butter and add to the eggs and sugar mix. Add the vanilla and fold in the flour and baking powder. Pour the mixture in a cake tin.

Peel and core the apples and slice them thinly. Place them on top of the cake mixture and push down slightly so that they sink a little. Sprinkle 2 Tbsp caster sugar over the top. Cook in the oven on 180 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
