Deliciously easy Appelkoek! (Baked Apple Cake)


This has got to be one of my favourite desserts. Its just homey and comforting! An easy recipe that you can’t go wrong with! It’s a must to serve it with some lovely vanilla ice cream. Enjoy! xx

3 Tbsp Butter

1 C Sugar

3 Eggs (beaten)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 Cup flour

2 Tsp Baking Powder

1 pinch salt

1 Tin pie apples (or you can boil fresh apple wedges in a tiny amount of water with a cinnamon stick until tender, drain and cool)

For the Syrup

1 Tin Ideal Milk

1/2 Cup Sugar

– Preheat your oven to 180 C

– Beat together the butter and sugar until creamy and then add the beaten eggs and vanilla.

– Sift into that mixture the flour, baking powder and salt and mix well.

– Place in a greased oven proof dish. Press the apples into the mixture.

– Bake for about 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown.

– Bring to the boil the ideal milk and the sugar and turn the heat off. Make sure all the sugar is dissolved. Let the mixture cool a little bit.

– Take the cake out of the oven. Prick all over with a fork and then pour the syrup over the top. You can sprinkle with a few chopped up, roasted walnuts if you like to give it a bit of crunch!
