Apple crumble cake

This recipe was an experiment when I was working on my second cookbook (which isn't published yet) and it turned out to be one of my favourite cakes, especially with vanilla custard poured over it.  It is like an apple tea cake with a delicious crumble topping.  Perfect with a cup of tea or coffee for that afternoon break.

100g butter, softened
½ cup caster sugar
1 egg
1 cup self-raising flour
1/3  cup milk
3 granny smith apples

50g chilled butter, chopped
½ cup flour (self-raising or plain)
½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
½ tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 180oC. Grease a 20cm cake tin.

In a large bowl, add cake ingredients; butter, caster sugar, egg, self-raising flour & milk.

Peel & core apples.  Slice into pieces approx. ½ cm thick. Lay on top of cake batter.

In a bowl, add crumble ingredients; chilled butter & flour.  Rub together with fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs.

Add sugar & cinnamon & stir to combine.  Sprinkle over the top of the cake.

Bake in preheated oven for 40 mins or until   cooked through.

  1. Have you ever wondered how many calories there are in an apple? To get this answer, you will need to consider some information such as the quantity you are measuring, the type of apple, the size of the apple, and the way in which it is served.
