This apple cake is easy, quick, delicious, and self-nurturing.
It's perfect for the freezer, and a good excuse for using the last fallen apples in the garden or the last heavy-looking apples in the fruit bowl, before buying new ones.
But I don't need a reason to make it, because it's easy peasy comfort food, and who really needs a reason to make that?
250 g butter
250 g sugar
A pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar, paste, or a bean. Use what you prefer or have in your cupboards.
250 g all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
For the top
2 tablespoons cinnamon, combined with 3 tablespoons of sugar
Turn on your oven at 180 degrees
Cover your baking tin with baking paper
Peel the apples, remove the core and carve them in boats, and lay half of them on the bottom of your baking tin, and sprinkle with half of the cinnamon/sugar mix
Whisk butter and sugar together, until nice and smooth, and add one egg at a time.
Add vanilla and a pinch of salt
Combine flour and baking powder and add it to your mixture.
Pour the cake batter, over the apples in your baking tin, and spread the rest of the apples on top, and sprinkle with the last cinnamon/sugar mix.
Bake the cake for 1 hour, turn off the oven at let it rest for 15 more minutes before you take it out.
Enjoy as it is, with ice cream, whipped creme, or sour creme. I love to eat the first slice when it's still warm and steaming, that's what I call self nurturing.
