2 large apples peeled, cored & sliced into thin wedges
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
a pinch of salt
1 cup butter
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tbsp cinnamon sugar mix (1 1/2 tbsp sugar with 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon) for the topping
Preheat the oven to 350 and then butter and line a 9” round baking pan or a spring form
Coat the apple wedges in lemon juice and set aside
In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar, using an electric hand mixer, until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat until smooth. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt and mix well. Slowly add the milk, mixing well after each addition, until the batter has a smooth consistency.
Transfer the batter to the baking pan. Arrange the apple slices on top of the batter in a spiral pattern
For the topping, mix together sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the apples and batter
Bake for 40–45 minutes or until the inserted toothpick in the center of the cake comes out clean and the top is golden brown. Leave to cool for 15 minutes in the pan. Run a knife around the edges of the cake and turn it out of the pan onto a wire rack.
Serve warm or at room temperature with whipped creamShare to Print
