Apple Cake

"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."

    WOW, this is such a YUMMY cake! It bakes up beautifully and has such a yummy cinammon apple taste. Very, very good! :)<br/>I made this using crips pink apples, a tart-sweet apple which holds up nicely during baking.<br/>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. :)<br/>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.<br/>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. <br/>I am sure this would also be great with other fruits. :)<br/>Made and reviewed for Everyday Is A Holiday Tag Game June 2011.

    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.

    Thanks for posting this recipe Pat... it's the same as I used to make when I was a kid... we had it after church for dessert with our sunday roast lunch, as it's quick and easy. A family favourite, with warm custard. I'd lost the recipe, so I'm thrilled to bits that you've given it to me again! A way to "dress it up" for dinner parties - cook individually in whatever pots you like. Also, another way I used to cook it is to cook the apples first, lay into the bottom of the pan, then top it with the cake layer. Must be eaten straight away, also with custard and/or cream. Of course, these days I make the custard with skim milk and gluten free custard powder. Thank you, thank you for posting!

    My kind of cake! Best eaten warm, quick and easy to make. We enjoyed this for breakfast as a friend of ours is found of saying? Life is too not to enjoy dessert first?. While we ate it without any add-ons and toughly enjoyed, also think it would be good with some vanilla yogurt. Made using Splenda for baking, and instead of using a whole egg used two egg whites and 1% milk. As my apples were very small increased the apples from two to three. Will make again. Thanks for the post.


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
