An Apple A Day

I have been wanting to make an apple cake for the longest time, but could never find a recipe I liked. I knew I wanted a fluffy and light base with little pieces of apple inside and on top. So what I did was I took a simple vanilla cake and just changed it up a bit. It came out looking amazing and tasting so good!
You will need…
200g butter
200g granulated suger
200g self-rising flour
1 bag of vanilla sugar (10g)
4 eggs
a pinch of salt
3 apples
Preheat the oven to 175°C. In a large bowl add the butter (soft), granulated sugar and vanilla sugar and mix until a smooth batter is formed. This takes around 10mins (5mins when using a mixer).
Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Add the yolk to the sugar-butter batter and beat together util mixed well. Add the sifted flour and the salt and mix again util all the ingredients are mixed well. Whisk egg whites util it has formed stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites mixture into paste. Using a ladle, spoon the mixture into a cake tin.
Peel the apples and remove the cores. Cut the apple in small cubes. Lay the cubes on top of the batter and push them a bit into the batter. Bake the cake for 15 mins. Lower the temperature to 160°C and bake another 35-40 mins. Transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool.
You can eat the apple cake on its own, but with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream you can make an ideal dessert. The hot slice of apple cake mixed with the cold ice-cream makes for a perfect combination!
