The Most Delicious Apple and Cinnamon Cake Ever!



A couple of weeks ago I made yet another internet food shopping 'clanger'.  Last time it was jacket potatoes, this time it was 6 bags of juicy, braeburn apples adorning my kitchen work top.  What's a girl to do with 36 apples?!

I went about googling recipes and came across the easiest, most delicious apple cake recipe everrrr!  I thought it would be rude not to share....

Apple and Cinnamon Cake

Ingredients:

150 g butter
4 apples
150 g brown sugar
2 eggs
300g Self-Raising flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
150 g sultanas/raisins

Method:
  • Melt the butter and wait for it to cool.  
  • Peel and grate the 4 apples.  Mix with the sugar and cooled butter.
  • Add the eggs and mix well.
  • Pour in all the dry ingredients and fold in.
  • Add the sultanas or raisins and mix well.
  • Pour into a prepared tin and bake on 170 for 40 minutes.
  • Allow to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then turn out on a wire rack. 




Perfect for either eaters or cookers, so if you've got a glut of apples falling off your tree right now - get baking!

PS If you've got any more apple recipes I may just have a few left over....

  1. This is a fabulous recipe which I constantly make at this time of year from my windfalls. My hubby and children can't get enough of this cake and it freezes well too so can be made in batches for eating in the weeks to come :-)

  8. This looks gorgeous. Wish we had an apple tree to have windfalls from, but i'll happily go buy for this recipe. BTW this would be a great EAT 'discovery' for my Things I Discovered series. Just add the link to this post. The trick is to jot them down as you come across them throughout the month and, hey presto, you have it all done by the first week of the next month!

  12. Oh I'm pleased I'm not the only one that sometimes messes up the on-line shop, I once received 30 bananas but luckily noticed as I was emptying the boxes and sent them back.

  13. Sounds delicious :)

    I've done it with bananas too but the delivery man said "you didn't really want all these did you?!" I'd marked 6 meaning I wanted 6 bananas not 6 *bags* of bananas!

  22. Yummmmm! Sounds a bit easier about turning the heap of apples into cider, too!

  23. This looked so yummy I had to try this yday. Although it certainly does tastes yummy it didn't rise much and was undercooked. I'm guessing its cos I chose a tin that was too small, and that I shouldn't have beaten the eggs? Is that right? You didn't mention tin size. Can you enlighten?! Thx S!

    1. Okay apologies for not being more specific! I used a 10inch x 10 inch square tin and self-raising flour - did you use self-raising? I did beat the eggs, didn't seem to matter.

    2. Thx S! No worries, it was probably my poor baking skills at play. Yes to SR flour. Tin was 10x10 - hmm, must have been my poor baking skills!!! Was still delicious btw, just a little on the heavy side :-) I've been eating small squares of it and loving it as has my normally apple-phobic son!
