Another simple cake which can be prepared in just a few minutes. One of those desserts you can prepare when you invite guests at the last minute. You have a few apples or pears in the refrigerator, this recipe is perfect for an impromptu event.
One of those recipes that you can prepare at last minute, kind of Oh we have apples in the fridge, what shall we do… and next thing you know, you have a wonderful dessert. What I call the perfect dessert for a Sunday night roast dinner !

Serve 6

150 Gr. All purpose flour – sifted
12 Gr. / 3 Teaspoon Baking powder
120 Gr. Sugar
Pinch Salt
60 Gr. Vegetable Oil
100 Ml. Milk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract or a small envelop Vanilla Sugar
3 Large Eggs at room temperature
2 Large Red Apples – Peeled, cored and chopped in bite size pieces

For the Frosting
1 Whole Egg
80 Gr. Butter melted
100 Gr. Sugar
Zest of a Lemon


Preheat the oven at 170 Celsius – Butter and flour a baking dish or baking tin. I use a 23cm baking pan.
In a large bowl, sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix the ingredients with a whisk, then add the eggs, oil and milk and continue mixing until there are no lumps. Pour the batter onto the baking dish.
Stir in the chopped apples on top of the cake.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Whilst your cake is baking, melt the butter in the microwave using the same bowl as the cake mixture.
Once melted, stir in the sugar and the last egg and using a whisk, mix well.
Pour the egg mixture over the cake and bake for another 12 minutes.
Leave it to cool for 10 minutes and serve.
You can also leave it at room temperature until cooled completely.
Dust a little powder sugar or serve with Chantilly cream or ice cream
Voila !
