I always like to bake, but during fall I love to bake things that include apple and cinnamon. 🍂 The combination of these two just scream fall to me. I had been thinking of what type of recipe I wanted to share on here, and then I found the perfect one. A recipe to an apple cinnamon cake (which I gave my own spin to)! Hopefully you’ll like it as much as I do…
“Oh fall, it’s nice to see you again.”
What you’ll need | 200 grams of self-rising flour, 130 grams of sugar, 120 grams of butter, 60 grams of brown sugar, 120 ml of milk, two eggs, one and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract, one teaspoon of cinnamon and one (peeled and chopped) apple (Inspired by All Recipes).
How to | Start by adding measuring everything out and adding the white sugar and butter to a bowl. Mix them together (with an electric mixer or just with a fork) until it’s smooth. Then add the eggs, one by one, mix everything together and add the vanilla extract to this mixture as well. When everything is smooth put the self-rising flour in this mixture and mix everything together again until it has a batter consistency. Here’s where you’ll need the milk and pour it in the mixture. Make sure your batter isn’t becoming too thin so don’t add to much milk. Grab another bowl to mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together. You will need this later when you’re adding the mixture to the tin.
First grease the tin so your apple cinnamon cake won’t stick to the tin. After that it’s time to add half of your batter to the tin. Make sure it covers the whole bottom of the tin. Then add half of the apples you’ve cut and half of the cinnamon and brown sugar in top of the batter. Pat it in the bottom batter a little. Lastly, do the same thing again to the top of your cake. Now you have two layers of the apple and cinnamon and brown sugar mixture, in the middle and on top of the cake.
Put the tin with your apple cinnamon cake in a preheated (at about 160 °C) oven for about 25 to 30 minutes. It really depends on your oven how long it needs to be in there. So make sure you check every 8 to 10 minutes what the cake looks like (because you don’t want it to burn). Check the cake by using a skewer to see if your cake is fully baked on the inside. If the skewer comes out clean, it’s done!
After you’ve let it cool down, it’s time to enjoy a piece of your apple cinnamon cake! I like to have mine with a cup of tea, on the couch, with a blanket, while watching a movie or series. Everyone I’ve given the cake has loved it so much. Besides the taste, the smell of the apple cinnamon cake is so good. It just smells like fall! Are you also a big fan of the apple and cinnamon combination? Have you ever tried an apple cinnamon cake?
