If our home should have a name of a dish, this would be Apple Cake. Apple cake, is not just apple cake. It is our symbol for love, cosiness and care. It graces our table almost every weekend, and once the freshly backed apple cake aromas come out of the oven they whisper “Home” and “I love you”.
The recipe remains the same, but from time to time we either make one cake or split the mixture into mini cakes.
- 250g self-raizing flour
- 220g butter
- 250g caster sugar
- 2 vanillas
- 4 eggs
- 20g brown sugar
- 1 apple
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
1. Melt the butter.
2. Whisk the melted butter, the sugar and the vanilla. Gradually, one by one, add the eggs continuously whisking. Whisk in the flour adding a little bit at a time.
3. Peal the apple and cut it into thin slices.
4. Grease and flour the backing dish. Sprinkle half of the brow sugar at the bottom of the backing dish and carefully arrange the slices of apple over. Sprinkle with the remaining brown sugar and the cinnamon. Poor over the apple cake mixture.
5. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes on 175C. When ready, take the cake out of the oven and let it rest for 2min in the form, then take it and turn it upside down on a plate. Serve warm with a spoon of vanilla ice cream, or cold.
