Apple Cake in a Bread Machine

Apple Cake in a Bread Machine

My son noticed the apple flavor right away when he ate this cake. Serve with whipped cream, if you like.


Unsalted butter
100 g
Light brown sugar (or white sugar)
4 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
Beaten eggs
Pancake mix
200 g
For the apple filling:
about 1/2
5 g
Light brown sugar (or white sugar)
1 tablespoon
Whipped cream (optional)
to taste


1. Make the apple filling. Cut the apple into 1cm pieces.
2. Put the diced apple, sugar and butter in a pan and stir fry.
3. When the butter and sugar have melted and everything is mixed well, simmer over low-medium heat until the moisture in the pan is gone, stirring occasionally.
4. When the moisture in the pan is gone and the apple pieces are translucent, lightly browned and shiny, the filling is done.
5. Prepare the other ingredients. Let the unsalted butter come to room temperature, and cut into small pieces.
6. Put the ingredients in the order listed in the bread machine. (Butter → sugar → milk → eggs → pancake mix → apple filling.)
7. Choose the "cake" setting, and press the Start button.
8. When the machine beeps, open the lid and scrape down the sides of the bread pan. Press the Start button again.
9. Take the cake out of the bread pan as soon as it's done. Cool on a rack and it's done!!
10. I used pancake mix with vanilla essence in it.

Story Behind this Recipe

No need to mix this cake! No need to prep a pound cake tin! By using pancake mix, you skip the chore of measuring and sifting flour! I'm really into making simple pound cakes in a bread machine now.
I used my popular apple pie filling to make an apple cake this time.
