Somehow Autumn is upon on us and this easy Traditional Danish Apple Cake is a wonderful cake to make.
250g plain Flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsps vanilla essence
6 large apples cored, peeled and slice
Additional Cinnamon Sugar
Butter and line a 23cm cake tin with baking parchment.
Peel, core and slice the apple into think slices. Place these into a bowl with a tablespoon on sugar and a teaspoon of cinnamon and toss them around. Leave while you make the cake mixture.
Mix the butter and sugar together in a magi-mix or with an electrical whisk until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, with a 30 second interval between each one.
Mix the flour with the baking powder and salt, and add to the butter and sugar mixture.
Place a layer of apples in the bottom of the cake tin. Then add the cake mixture onto. Starting from the centre lay the apple slices in a circular snail like pattern.
Bake in your pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for 1 hour and then cover in silver foil and bake for another 15 minutes.
Enjoy with vanilla ice-cream, on its own or with some creme fraiche.
