Apple Cake

This recipe is almost fool proof.  I actually don’t think it is possible to mess this one up. It’s buttery, sweet, moist and smells wholesome and comforting. It can be made with any fruit, I’ve had success with blueberries and adding rhubarb.  Tinned fruit is completely acceptable in this recipe, and it can also be made the old fashioned way with a big bowl and a wooden spoon, which makes it so easy to whip up at the last moment. Ideal for afternoon tea or after dinner with a little custard and cream.

Press other half on top of apples.

  1. hey, i made the cake, like i said, with pears though. it was so tasty! I added cinnamon to the pears and a little bag of vanilla sugar and mixed that into the fruit.
    i almost didn’t have enough dough though to cover everything, so for the top layer i sort of spread it over best i could and there were little spaces that didn’t cover the fruit entirely. It was great in the end though! It doesn’t have to be perrrrfect 🙂
    conclusion: very tasty and made my whole home smell very warm and comforting 🙂
    keep up the good work, lara!
