Extravagant Double Apple Cake

Extravagant Double Apple Cake

This luxurious cake contains both grated and cubed apples. You don't need to cook down the apple - use as is.

Ingredients: 18 cm pound cake or cake mold

Butter (or margarine)
70 g
70 g
White flour
120 g
Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon


1. Line the cake mold with parchment paper. To learn how to neatly line a cake mold with paper, refer to Recipe ID: 2167152.
2. Soften the butter in the microwave until it has a mayonnaise-like consistency (if straight out of the refrigerator, microwave at 300 W for 40 - 45 seconds).
3. Add the sugar and mix well. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
4. Beat the egg and gradually add it to the bowl while stirring the rest of the ingredients. If the egg is cold, it will separate from the butter, so make sure to bring it to room temperature first.
5. Grate half of the apple and cut the other half into 5 mm pieces. You could also cut it into 1 cm cubes.
6. Mix the grated apple into Step 4.
7. Combine the flour and baking powder and sift. Use a rubber spatula to gently mix into the batter.
8. Add the chunks of apple.
9. Pour the batter into the cake mold, smooth the surface, and bake for 45 minutes at 180°C.
10. Once an inserted skewer comes out cleanly, remove the cake by the parchment paper and cool on a cooling rack.
11. When it has cooled, tightly wrap it in plastic wrap and let it sit for one day. It tastes better the next day so try to restrain yourself. Wait at least half a day.
12. If you can't wait a day, you can enjoy it hot and fresh from the oven. It will taste just like apple pie.
