Because there's apples....somewhere

With all these enticing posts here, here, here and here about apples and baking (which I cannot match here), and because there's something so wholesome and just a big bit delicious about baking and eating apples....and cinnamon, don't forget their perfect partnership with cinnamon.....I needed to try out a new recipe, any new apple recipe!

This is what I came up with. A rustic creation, and not too unhealthy.

Just perfect for an indulgent bite while seed collecting in the garden.

Apple Cake

2 whole eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/4 cup low fat milk, (60ml)
60 g butter or low fat spread
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup self-raising white flour, sifted
1 1/2 tbs cornflour
1 medium apple, peeled, cored, sliced
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp raw sugar
Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease or line a 20cm cake tin. Set aside.
Beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl with electric beaters, until light and fluffy. Add milk, butter and vanilla and beat well to combine.
Sift flours together in a bowl. Carefully fold flour mixture through egg and butter mixture. Pour into prepared tin.
Combine cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl. Arrange apple slices on top of cake and sprinkle with cinnamon mixture. Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes or until skewer comes out clean when inserted. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Turn out on a cake rack to cool completely. Then head outside with a slice.

Thanks for sharing such a delicious recipe. The girls and I made it yesterday. It was a hit. I will be adding this one to the recipe file.

Ooohh- this looks so fantastically yummy! I'll have to try this very soon (after we go apple picking again.) Thanks for passing along the recipe.

Also thanks for linking to me. The apple crisp I was talking about is just sliced apples baked with a butter/sugar/oat/flour/spices topping. Is that similar to apple crumble? I didn't get any pictures of our crisp because it was eaten up in a flash.
