Wallis' Apple Tartin Cake

Recipe by cookingpompom
READY IN: 1hr 15mins
YIELD: 1 cake




  • Apple mix:
  • Peel, core and slice the apples and set aside.
  • In a large, heavy based frypan, melt the butter then add the sugar. When golden (almost brown) add the cinnamon. Remember to stir constantly as caramel burns fast!
  • Add the apples and cook for 60 seconds.
  • Pour mix evenly into a well greased and well lined 20cm round cake tin.
  • Let cool while making the cake mix.
  • Cake:
  • In a medium sized bowl, add the flour, sugar, butter and vanilla, beat.
  • Add the water a little at a time. It will be quite thick, this is correct.
  • Gently add "blobs" of the mix all over and pat the cake mix over the apples (Wallis used a fork).
  • Place into a pre-heated 200oC oven for 50 -55 minutes.
  • Once cooked, cool in the tin for 10 mins and then turn onto a plate.
  • traditionally enjoyed at room temperature with a blob of cream and a cup of tea for afternoon tea.
