This is not a rich or heavy cake. It is a simple cake that is great served with tea or coffee - either cold or warm, with cream if desired. Eat within 2 days. Australian measurements used. (Aust. Women's Weekly)

Top Review by Chef on the coast

This was a super tasty recipe! While eating it I was thinking what else could be put on top besides apples. Pineapple came to mind. :) I did double the recipe for a 9x13 cake pan and it took me a bit to figure out what 125 g of butter amounted to. The only thing I added was cinnamon sugar sprinkled on the top. Made for the July NZ/Aussie recipe swap.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 Deg C (350 Deg F or Gas Mark 4). Grease then line a 20cm deep round cake pan with baking paper.
  2. Using an electric mixer cream butter and sugar in a small bowl, until pale in colour and light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until combined.
  4. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Stir in half of the milk and half of the sifted flours. Then stir in the remaining milk and flour.
  5. Spread into prepared pan. Sprinkle evenly with the apple then top with the almonds.
  6. Bake for about 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Stand for 5 minutes then carefully turn onto a wire rack to cool.
