17: Recipe | Apple Cake

Do you remember the apple cake I baked for Jon’s birthday in October? An old family friend (as in older lady, long-time friend) gave me the recipe earlier this year and I am so glad I finally got around to baking it.

The cake looks very complicated, but was in fact one of the easiest cakes I ever baked. And the great thing about this cake is: the crust is relatively thin, which keeps the whole thing fruity and light.

Definitely make some homemade whipped cream with this one!


150 gram (5.3 oz) flour
1 tsp of baking powder
75 gram(2.65 oz) sugar

75g soft butter
1 vanilla sugar
1 egg
4-5 Boscop apples  (I used Granny Smith)
some small extra pieces of butter

Mix the flour and baking powder. Then add sugar, vanilla sugar, egg and butter and knead until smooth. Use a small spring-form pan and spread the dough on the bottom.

Peel the apples, cut in quarters and slice each quarter lengthwise. Then arrange the quarters on the dough. Spread small piece of butter on the top.

Bake at 400°F (200°C) for about 45 minutes.

Enjoy warm with a dollop of whipped cream!

  1. Looks very yummy and there is never enough apple cakes. Need to try this recipe one day.

  2. Ich liebe diesen Apfelkuchen… zwar normalerweise nicht mit Mürbeteig, aber Hauptsache Äpfel :-)
