Sumary of Speedy apple cake by Anja Dunk:
- Like many of the recipes that came by way of my Grossmutter, this one is simple and good in the plainest sense – an everyday cake and one that now sits on our kitchen work surface, too..
- The batter takes less than 10 minutes to mix together because it is made with melted butter, far quicker than a batter in which the butter and sugar need creaming until light and fluffy..
- Serves 6For the batterbutter 175g, plus extra for greasing golden caster sugar 150g plain flour 200g baking powder 1 tsp eggs 3, beatenfine sea salt ¼ tsp For the toppingapples 6 small, peeled, cored and halved (I prefer to use cookers such as Bramleys for their tart flavour, but eaters hold their shape better)raisins 50g vanilla sugar 1 tbsp ground cinnamon ½ tsp Melt the butter in a large saucepan, then turn off the heat and add the sugar..
- Beat for a minute, then add the flour, baking powder, eggs and salt and stir with a wooden spoon until a smooth batter is formed….
