Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes


One and a half cups of all-purpose flour, half teaspoon baking powder, 2 eggs, half a cup of butter, 2 apples, zest of one lemon, a quarter cup of milk, a pinch of salt and a few drops of vanilla essence/extract. If you can get cinnamon powder a hint of it will be great too.

Here is what you need to do:

Oil baking pan and preheat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit.

Core and peel apples and cut into mini squares- set aside

Cream butter and sugar. Beat eggs and add in.

Add in milk, vanilla, salt, lemon zest (you obtain this by grating the back of a lemon). If you are using cinnamon, add it at this point. Mix everything together well.

Sprinkle a little flour on the sliced apples so they don’t stick together.

Then add flour and baking powder to your liquid mixture and mix properly.

Then add your apple slices to the batter and fold in until they are evenly distributed.

Pour batter into greased pan and use a spoon to smoother the top.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until an inserted tooth pick turns out clean.pre-signature-pro

    Hi precious saw this Apple cake recipe and really loved it but what about the apple slices in the cake will they be visible ?or will it melt away

    • Hi Henwe, the slices don’t melt away after baking. You will be able to taste them – they will be soft and sweet. If you are not comfortable with chunks of apple in your cake, go ahead and grate the apples instead.
