Praline Apple Cake

Recipe by Jenny Sanders
READY IN: 1hr 45mins




  • Preheat the oven to 350°F Line the bottom of a 9" springform pan with parchment, and butter the pan.
  • Cream the sugar and beat in the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla.
  • Sift the flour and baking powder into the butter and sugar.
  • Beat them in to form a smooth batter.
  • Scrape the batter into the prepared springform pan.
  • Wet your hands and pat it evenly into the pan.
  • Mix the cinnamon and sugar.
  • Peel the apples and cut them into thin slices.
  • Toss them in the cinnamon sugar and push them, on end, into the batter.
  • At first they will seem to be sticking very far out of the batter, but the apples will make the level rise as you go.
  • When all the apples are in- pack them in there- press them down slightly, so none stick out more than 1/2".
  • Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon sugar over the top.
  • Bake the cake for 45 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cream the remaining butter and sugar, and beat in the remaining egg.
  • Spread this over the top of the cake and bake for 15 minutes more.
