Here is a simple recipe for an apple cake. Try it with ice cream! Note that in English, ‘Tablespoon’ always has a capital T and ‘teaspoon’ has a small t. This is because sometimes we don’t write the entire word – we may simply put ‘T’ or ‘t’.
- 175 g dark brown sugar
- 110 g butter
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 225 g flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 450 g cooking apples: peeled, cored and diced
- 4 Tablespoons milk
- 1 Tablespoon honey, warmed
- 1 Tablespoon caster sugar
Pre-heat the oven to 170 °C.
Grease a deep, 18 cm cake pan and line it with buttered parchment.
Cream together the butter and brown sugar.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating thoroughly after each one.
Mix the flour, cinnamon and baking powder together in a separate bowl. Add this mixture, little by little, into the egg/butter/sugar mixture.
Add the apples and milk and stir gently.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for 90 minutes until risen and firm to the touch. Check on it every 15 minutes.
Let the cake cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes, then take it out of the pan and let it cool on the rack.
When it’s completely cool, brush it with the warmed honey and sprinkle it with the caster sugar.
