Apple Cake Recipe for Apple Day

Have you heard of World Apple Day? I thought there’s no better way to celebrate it than by sharing this apple cake recipe with you and remind you of a few other easy Autumnal puddings and cakes made with the humble apple.  This is a lovely stodgy pudding type cake which is nice to eat cold by the slice or great served warm with custard.

World Apple Day began in England in 1990 not only to celebrate apples and orchards but to bring awareness of the UK landscape, ecology, and its countryside customs. Many local and large organisations, such as the Women’s Institute, National and Wildlife Trusts, join in with this national day.INGREDIENTS

2 eggs
80g sugar
65g natural yoghurt
160g sifted plain flour
35ml milk
65g softened butter
lemon zest
10g baking powder
2 apples either chopped or thinly sliced
soft brown sugar to sprinkle on top
cinnamon and sultanas (optional)

METHOD (All mixed in a blender unless stated)

  1. Preheat oven to 160
  2. Start by mixing the eggs and sugar
  3. Add in the yogurt and flour and mix in well.
  4. Add milk, butter, lemon zest, and baking powder and mix until smooth and creamy
  5. Stir in the apple pieces by hand, (and sultanas and cinnamon if desired)
  6. Pour into a lined baking tin and sprinkle brown sugar over the top
  7. Cook for approx 45 mins.

or maybe some Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream to go with them.

I’ve also found 10 more lovely apple dessert recipes on the Saga website.

  1. Love cake and love apples, just need to make this a gluten free friendly version with xanthan gum and gluten free flour! Love baking! Thanks for this :-)! Cannot eat wheat yet am often taking wheat flour recipe then just substituting them from gluten free flour and adding some xanthan gum too- it is fairly easy to do!

    Warmest wishes to You from this chronic pain warrior from Devon- hope of apples, Clara 🙂
