Simple Apple Cake Recipe

Who’s ready for a tea party? I know I am!

I first made this delicious apple cake last week and I’ve already made it twice since then. I was seriously craving some apple pie but had no milk, sour cream or yoghurt, and apparently you can’t bake a nice apple pie without any of those. I could’ve run to the store, but…it was a dark and stormy night, you know the rest.

So, here it is. A delicious simple apple cake put together in less than an hour and which has seriously become my favourite dessert at the moment.

This apple cake is perfect for those rainy afternoons when all you want to do is curl up with a good book, a nice cup of tea and just relax. Or, mix it up and top it with some nice vanilla ice-cream! Whatever your heart desires.

If you’re feeling fancy you can decorate the cake with confectioners sugar – I didn’t because I really liked how the top came out. I mean, just look at it! Isn’t it beautiful?!

Ingredients
  • 120 grams all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 113 grams butter at room temperature
  • 135 grams sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water you can also use milk or dark rum, if you're feeling fancy
  • 2 large apples cored and cut into small cubes
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 176°C and grease a 9-inch springform with butter.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Using a handheld mixer or a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, mix the butter and sugar until light and fluffy (a few minutes on medium speed). Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well and scraping down the sides of the bowl after each egg. Add the vanilla and water (you can also use dark rum for a richer flavor, or milk). Next, add the flour mixture and mix on low speed until combined. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the chopped apples.
  4. Scrape the batter into the prepared springform and sprinkle evenly with one tablespoon of sugar. This will make the top a bit crispy and delicious.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes or until cake is golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool.
