French Apple Cake

Serves 8-10 Prep Time 50 mins Cooking Time 65 mins

This is an unusual cake which makes a lovely dessert.
The tartness of the apples gives it a fresh and light quality which is welcome at the end of a good meal.

  • 500g (1 lb) tart cooking apples e.g. Bramleys or Granny Smiths
  • 75g (3oz) self-raising flour
  • 1 level tsp baking powder
  • 125g (4oz) caster sugar
  • 75ml (2½ fl oz) milk
  • 50g (2oz) melted butter
  • 2 medium eggs, beaten
  • soft butter for greasing cake tin
  • You will need a deep, 20cm (8 inch) cake tin, a cooling rack and baking parchment.


  • 75g (3oz) butter, very soft
  • 100g (3½oz) caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • a medium egg, beaten
  • icing sugar

Preheat oven to 170C/325F/M3.

Grease the tin and line the base with a circle of baking parchment.

Peel, core and chop the apples, place in the tin. Put the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and using the beaters at top speed, beat to a smooth cream.

Pour the batter over the apples and bake for 45 minutes on the middle shelf.

Beat the topping ingredients together and pour over the semi-baked cake.

Return to the oven for a further 30 minutes.

Cool the cake in the tin for a further 40 minutes. Loosen sides with a knife and gently shake out onto the cooling rack lined with a piece of parchment. Leave to cool a little.

Carefully turn the cake over onto a serving plate, so the topping is uppermost.

Sprinkle with a little icing sugar and serve with some softlywhipped Whipping Cream.
