This is a SUPER easy cake to make. You do not need to know how to bake to make this delicious creation. It’s light, has very little sugar and is one layer.
What you need:
- 2 eggs, plus 1 yolk
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 sunflower oil
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp Autumn Harvest Blend, or cinnamon
- Zest of one lemon
- 3 cups very ripe apples
- Butter & flour to coat baking pan
- Mixer – hand held or standing
- 9 inch round cake pan
Preheat oven to 350° F
Grease the baking pan with butter and a light dusting of flour. This will help to keep the cake from sticking to the pan.
Beat the eggs and sugar until foamy with a hand mixer or a standing mixer with a paddle attachment. Add all remaining ingredients, except the apples, and mix until combined. With a spoon, mix in the apples until they are incorporated.
Pour the batter in the pan and bake for 1 hour. If you’d like a crunchier top texture, sprinkle a bit sugar on top before baking. The cake is done when you pierce with a knife and it comes out clean.
Let cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a cooling rack.
