Apple Cake

Further to Starningblue’s Apple Crumble recipe, I was urged to dig out my similar but cake version from my growing to-blog list.

So here you go:-



  • 2 cooking apples, chopped
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter, diced
  • 1 cup soft light brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 180 degree. Grease and line tin.

Toss chopped apple with lemon juice and set aside. Sift flour and baking powder, rub in butter until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Stir in 3/4 cup of sugar, apple and the egg and mix well, adding sufficient milk to make a soft dropping consistency.

Transfer dough to your tin. Mix together the remaining sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the cake.

Bake for 45-50 mins until golden.


Does it look alright? Its quite tasty and I like it warm. Didn’t use 1 cup of sugar though and as you can see I sprinkled lots of cinnamon. Also, 2-3 tbsp of milk wasn’t enough when I make it so make your own judgment.

Tell me how did yours turn out!
