French apple cake recipe

We are always grateful to Tru-Cape fans who send in their recipes to us and share what they have been making with their Tru-Cape fruit on social-media channels.

Leonie Ambraal

Leonie Ambraal is one such fan who wrote in with a delicious sounding recipe for French Apple Cake which, she tells us, came from her grandmother.

French Apple Cake

15m prep  |  40m cook  |  8 servings

“This cake is wonderfully moist and a great way to use some seasonal apples. Traditionally this style of apple cake contains rum, but we’ve used milk instead – feel free to swap!”, she says.

150g (1 cup) plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

125g butter, at room temperature, chopped

100g (1/2 cup) caster sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

60ml (1/4 cup) milk (see note)

3 large Pink Lady apples, peeled, cut into 2-3cm pieces

Icing sugar, to dust

Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Grease a 21cm springform pan and line the base with baking paper.

Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Use electric beaters to beat the butter and sugar in a separate bowl until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla.

Fold the flour mixture and milk into the butter mixture, then fold through the apple. Transfer to prepared pan and smooth the surface. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 10 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Serve the cake dusted with icing sugar.”

Thanks for sharing Leonie.
