Perfect for cold rainy days, this will satisfy the sweet tooth!


Ingredients (makes 1 cake)

  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 125g Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Plain flour
  • 1 3/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 4 Granny Smith apples peeled (2x chopped into thin slices for the top of the cake and 2x chopped into small chunks for the caramel apples)
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 20 g Butter
  • dash Cream (plus extra to serve)
  • 1/8 to 1/4 cup brown sugar

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and line a cake tin of your choice - I use either a round one or a loaf tin for this recipe
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla essence.
  3. Combine flour, cinnamon and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Finally stir in the milk until mixture is smooth. Pour or spoon into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until skewer comes out clean
  5. Meanwhile, add butter to a frypan and melt.
  6. Add in apples and cook for a few minutes then add in brown sugar (start with 1/8 cup and increase to desired sweetness) and stir to dissolve
  7. Add in a dash of cream and stir through to combine
  8. Cook on a low heat until apples are softened and sauce has thickened slightly.
  9. Serve the cake warm or cold with the apples and caramel sauce over the top. Tastes great with some cream on it too!
