INGREDIENTS

    • 2 eggs
    • 175 g caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 85 g butter
    • 75 ml milk
    • 125 g plain flour
    • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (I’m not such a fan of cinnamon so l left this out)
    • 2 1/4 tsp baking powder
    • 2 cooking apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced (or chunks!)

METHOD

    • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C
    • Line a square baking tin (8 inch by 8 inch) with baking paper
    • Whisk eggs, sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl until thickened enough to leave a trail (took about 5 mins with my electric mixer)
    • Melt butter and pour into egg mixture (stirring all the time)
    • Fold in flour, cinnamon and baking powder, mix gently but thoroughly to ensure no lumps
    • Pour mixture into baking tin
    • Arrange apple slices over the top of batter – they will sink to bottom during cooking
    • In my oven I cook for 20-25 mins, checking it after 20 min, and taking out when it is golden brown and well risen
    • Allow to cool in tin before slicing into squares – enjoy!
    • Can be served with fresh cream, custard or icecream – but still warm and moist from the oven it’s perfect on it’s own!

So there you have it – a delicious and easy apple cake recipe.
