Super Simple Apple Cake

You know what’s been a while since I posted?
Something sweet!

So I think it’s about damn time, don’t you?

Yesterday I made this tasty apple cake. IMG_7561-2

The recipe is similar to most of my muffin recipes and with the same ingredient, because it is impossible to beat an apple-cinnamon combo. For me it’s the perfect blend of savory, sweet and a little bit tart.

Since I have no one but my boyfriend to share this with, we use a really small springform pan. It’s probably around 12 cm in diameter. So if you’re using a “normal size” one, you should probably double or even triple this recipe.

So, to make this teeny tiny cake you’ll need:
1 egg
2 dl, or 0.8 cups of flour
1 dl, or 0.4 cups of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of baking powder
20 grams of melted butter
1 dl, or 0.4 cups of milk
1 pinch of cardamom
1/2 a medium-sized green apple, finely sliced

In a bowl, whisk your egg and sugar together untill light a fluffy. Sift in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and cardamom and mix thoroughly. Add the butter and milk, whisk and make sure your batter is smooth.

Butter and bread your springform pan, just to make sure nothing sticks to the sides and pour in a third of your batter. Now layer on half of your apple slices and add the rest of the better, and then layer the remaining apple bits on top.
Put your cake in a 180 degree oven for 20-25 minutes and the take out and let cool. IMG_7567-2

There you go, simple as… well, simple as cake really!

For some extra indulgence, sprinkle powder sugar on top and serve with whipped cream. IMG_7578-2IMG_7589-2
Honestly, nothing beat this cake.
Try it out!
