Recipe Corner - Apple Cake
This is the easiest apple cake recipe ever! One can also use other fruits like plums as an alternative.
600g apples, peeled and sliced (I usually use Golden Delicious)
1 teaspoon Vanilla essence
2 teaspoons baking powder (the German one is fine)
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar
Preheat oven to 175°C.
Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla essence for 4 minutes with a hand mixer on high speed. Add eggs one at a time and then add in the flour with baking powder and salt. Mix for another minute or so.
Grease a 26cm diameter cake tin and pour the mixture into it.
Arrange the sliced apples evenly in the baking tin and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over it.
Bake for 30-40 minutes till golden brown. When it's ready, an inserted toothpick or fine skewer should come out clean.
