This recipe is almost fool proof. I actually don’t think it is possible to mess this one up.
It tastes so good. Buttery, sweet, moist. And it smells amazingly wholesome and comforting.
Apple Cake Recipe
125g butter (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
3/4 self raising flour
apples (I use a whole 495g tin)
Oven at 180C
Beat butter and sugar together until creamy
Beat in egg
Mix in flours, until just combined and resembles a dough like mixture
Divide the dough in half
Press out one half into a paper lined cake tin.
Put apples on top
Press other half on top of apples.
Bake for about 35 minutes.
THAT IS IT!!!!!
Notes on the recipe:
Feel free to use fresh apples, about two should do it.
Also, I like to sprinkle cinnamon sugar onto the apples.
I have been known to break up the second half of the dough and place bits over the apple, for a kind of holey result, but lately I just put a piece of baking paper onto the bench, and press it onto there, and then place it upside down on the apples, and peel off the paper. Easy.
You could use a rolling pin. If you really wanted to. But why bother right?
I’m sure this recipe would lend itself to many other fruits…should you care to experiment – I would LOVE to hear about it!!!!
Serve with cream, custard or ice cream.
