[ sunday baking ] apple tea cake

This is very easy apple cake to make. Perfect for that afternoon tea cake! Recipe is originally from my grand-mother.


185g butter, softened
2/3 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 tea spoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
2 granny smith apples, peeled, halved, cored
1 teaspoon caster sugar
1/2 tea spoon mixed spice or ground cinnamon
1/4 cup of apricot jam


Pre-heat oven to moderately slow 160C. Grease and line a 22cm round cake pan with baking paper.

Place butter, sugar and cinnamon in the large bowl. Beat on medium speed until light and creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour, baking powder and milk to the batter. Mix on low-speed until combined. Pour into prepared pan.

Using a small knife slice apples and fan over cake batter. Sprinkle with sugar and mixed spice. Bake for 40 minutes , brush with jam and bake for a further 15 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before turning onto wire rack to cool.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or thick cream. Enjoy!
