This cake is best eaten warm with either icecream or my favourite warm custard and is reasonably quick to put together. Please note the batter will be thick which makes it one of those cakes that needs to be eaten the same day and preferably warm.

- 1 egg (lightly beaten)
- 3 tablespoons butter (melted)
- 3 tablespoons milk

- 2 tablespoons sugar
- Preheat oven to 180 degree celsius.
- Grease pie plate.
- Sift flour with and sugar and then add the egg, melted butter and milk and mix well.

WOW, this is such a YUMMY cake! It bakes up beautifully and has such a yummy cinammon apple taste. Very, very good! :)
I made this using crips pink apples, a tart-sweet apple which holds up nicely during baking.
Even though my apples were ordinary in size I only needed one apple thinly sliced to cover the dough and I also only needed 2 ts of sugar and cinnamon mix sprinkled on top to make a decadent coating. I sprinkled the excess on top of the slices from the second apple and baked those alongside the cake which made for a yummy dessert, too. :)
The dough was spongy and firm at the same time, which was so good with the moisture from the apples. I inserted mine partially into the dough so that it would absorb their moisture.
I also made my own self-raising flour by adding 1 ts baking powder, 1/8 ts baking soda and a pinch of salt to ordinary flour. It worked out really well and was still so easy to make.
I am sure this would also be great with other fruits. :)

This was good. I made a pretty flower with the apple slices. :) I added a little cinnamon into cake batter. The cake was a little dry. I didn't have any whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. So I went old school and poured 1/2 & 1/2 on the warm cake to add moisture. mmmmgood. Not one piece left over after. This is a great quick cake and it calls for ingredients that are on hand.
This was very simple to make. Mine turned out very light with a nice hint of sweetness and cinnamon. The texture was definitely not moist though -- more crumbly. I might make this again, but not for company.
