Apple Cake

Apple Cake

This beautiful cake is more apple than cake which makes it so moist and delicious.  A dusting of powdered sugar is all the adornment it needs, although a little whipped cream never hurt anything..

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

Pinch of salt

4 large Granny Smith apples

2 large eggs

3/4 cup sugar

3 tablespoons apple juice

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 stick of unsalted butter, melted and cooled

Confectioners sugar for dusting top

  • pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Generously butter a 9″ spring form pan and place it on a foil lined rimmed cookie sheet
  • Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl
  • Peel the apples, then cut them in half, remove the seeds and cut them into 1/4″ slices
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs until they are foamy
  • Pour in the sugar, apple juice and vanilla and blend
  • Add half the flour mixture and mix
  • Add half the melted butter and mix
  • Again the flour, then the butter mixing after each addition
  • Whisk until you have a smooth batter
  • With a rubber spatula, fold in the apples and coat with the batter
  • Pour into the pan, pushing down the apples a bit to level out the top
  • Bake for about an hour and twenty minutes or until the top is golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean
