Thursday baking - Dutch apple cake

Dutch apple cake is more pudding than cake. It is my favourite apple dessert and I have the Horgan family to thank for it. It's one of those recipes that makes something delicious out of next-to-nothing in just a few minutes. The walnuts are optional but worth adding if you have them.

Dutch Apple Cake
2 eggs
1 cup of sugar
6 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts
6 apples peeled and diced
30g butter (melted)

Preheat oven to 160C. Beat egg and sugar until frothy. Mix in dry ingredients and then stir in the apple. Put mixture into a greased dish and pour melted butter on top. Bake for around 30 minutes or until it looks cooked. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm with cream, icecream or yoghurt.


  1. yum, I'm so excited about autumn and this looks perfect for the coming season. Does it turn out kind of fluffy or is it more substantial?

  2. It's more fluffy than cakey Mika - mostly apple held together with a small amount of light eggy batter. Such a good pudding to make when you feel like a little something after dinner...

  3. I love that you just pour the butter over the top, sounds awesome, and just my kind of food right now too :)
