A deliciously easy apple cake made from scratch – this soft and tender apple cake is packed with big chunks of apples and features a crunchy topping sprinkled with almonds – it’s apple-licious! 🍏
I love cake any day, and few things beat a delicious homemade apple cake with a side of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.. I had a handful of apples on my kitchen counter that was borderline going bad, so to minimize food waste (and make cake of course, who am I kidding?), I decided to throw together an apple cake! In case you’re in the mood to try it, here’s what you need;
4 large apples – 2 teaspoons cinnamon – 200 g butter – 200 g sugar – 4 largs eggs – 2 teaspoons baking powder – 170 g white flour – a handful of chopped almonds
Preheat oven to 160 C/320F. Use a baking sheet at the bottom of the spring pan to prevent the cake from sticking to the pan (I use this one in 9 inches/22 cm).
Peel, core and chop apples into large chucks. Put them in a zip-lock bag with a little cinnamon and sugar, shake so all apple chunks are covered.
Mix butter and sugar together, I recommend using a kitchen machine for this. Make sure to leave your butter in room temperature before using it, as it makes it easier to work with. Add the eggs at the end.
Stir together flour, cinnamon and baking powder into a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients into the wet ones. Chop of handful of almonds into little pieces to use for topping.
Pour batter into the prepared pan. Stick the apples into the batter and sprinkle with chopped almonds on top. Bake for 50 minutes in the middle of the oven, remember to cool of before serving.
Tip; the cake gets better on the second day, when the apple juices seep further into the cake. Serve with a side of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, and enjoy! 🙂
