  • 120grams all purpose flour
  • 1teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4teaspoon salt
  • 113grams butterat room temperature
  • 135grams sugar
  • 3tablespoons wateryou can also use milk or dark rum, if you’re feeling fancy
  • 2large applescored and cut into small cubes
  • 1teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2medium eggs
  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.
