Recipe type: Baking
Serves: serves 6 to 8
  • 2 large apples – peeled, cored and slice into 2-inch size
  • 125g all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 113g unsalted butter – soften at room temperature
  • 130g caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp dark rum (omit if not available)
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar for sprinkling
  1. Preheat oven at 175°C.
  2. Butter the base and sides of an 8-inch round or square pan generously and line the base with non-stick baking paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, add flour, baking powder and salt together. Mix well with a whisk.
  4. Cream butter and sugar with an electric whisk until pale and fluffy. It should come together in 2 mins.
  5. Add in eggs, milk, vanilla extract, rum and mix until combined. If it looks grainy that’s okay.
  6. Add in flour mixture and mix on low speed until flour just disappear. Do not over mix.
  7. Fold in apples with a spatula.
  8. Transfer batter into the baking pan and level the top with the spatula.
  9. Sprinkle sugar over the top and bake for 35 to 40 mins, until golden brown.
  10. Insert a bamboo skewer into the center of the cake to test. If it comes out clean, then it is ready.
  11. Transfer onto a cooling rack and allow to cool for 5 mins before removing from the pan.
  12. Cool the cake for another 30 mins before cutting into it.
  13. Dust with generous amount of powdered sugar and serve.
