This easy apple cake recipe uses simple ingredients to create something rather special. Bramley apples add a tart and juicy apple flavour, with sultanas bringing some extra sweetness. This cake could be the superstar of your afternoon tea spread, or a delicious little slice of nice for your elevenses – it’s also a great way to use up leftover apples. Add a scoop of ice cream or drizzle of warm custard to finish it off. Looking for more cake recipes? Look no further.

  • 125g butter
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 3 organic eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 175g plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon organic milk
  • 3 Drops vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sultanas
  • 2 Bramley apples


Step 1

Preheat oven to 180 C, Gas mark 4 and line a 20cm, springform tin with baking parchment.

Step 2

Whizz the butter and caster sugar in a mixer until creamy, soft and pale in colour. Add the organic eggs, one at a time, beating gently after each addition. Stir the baking powder into the flour and add this to the egg mixture. At this stage, add the organic milk and stir in a few drops of vanilla extract.

Step 3

Peel and core the apples and cut them into slices, around 3–4cm thick.

Step 4

Put a layer of cake mixture at the base of the tin. Arrange a layer of apples on top, then sprinkle with the sultanas. Repeat, and finish with a layer of the cake mixture.

Step 5

Bake in the centre of the oven for 35–40 minutes, until cooked through. Turn out onto a wire tray, peel the baking parchment and allow to cool. Dust with icing sugar. Serve at room temperature.
