- 100g butter
- ½ cup (110g) caster (superfine) sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour, sifted
- 1 teaspoon baking powder, sifted
- 1 tablespoon milk
- icing (confectioner’s) sugar, to dust
- 5 apples peeled and chopped
- 10g butter
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1¼ cups (185g) plain (all-purpose) flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 125g butter
- ¾ cup (165g) caster (superfine) sugar
- Preheat oven to 160°C (320ºF). To make the crumble, mix the flour, baking powder, butter and sugar in a bowl until it resembles breadcrumbs. Set aside.
- To make the apple filling, place the apple, butter and cinnamon in a saucepan over low heat and cook for 5 minutes or until softened. Allow to cool.
- Place the butter and sugar in an electric mixer and beat until creamy. Add the egg and beat well. Fold through the flour, baking powder and milk. Spread in a 20cm x 30cm tin lined with non-stick baking paper, top with the apple filling and crumble and bake for 40 minutes until golden. Serves 6–8.
Absolutely beautiful recipe. The base is light, the fresh apples are sweet and the crumble gives it a crunchy texture and is just divine in your mouth. Add to the crowd pleasing list.
LOVE this recipe, but I add 1/2 cup of oats to the crumble mix.
My husband´s grandma bakes this cake and it is beloved by the whole family.
