Granny Smith apples are everywhere, and very cheap these days.
One thing I love to make with these apples are cakes and pies.
This cake is deliciously moist, with two surprises..
A soft delicious layer of almost stewed-like apples at the bottom.. and a crumble layer up the top.
Easy, peasy to make..
For the cake batter:
1.5 cups self raising flour
3/4 cup oil
1 cup brown sugar
1.5-2 tsp cinnamon powder
vanilla flavouring (about 2 tablespoons of vanilla sugar)
1/2 cup plain yogyurt
- We all know how to make cake batter 🙂 so wont explain here.
For the apple layer:
1.5 large granny smith apples (more or less depending on the size of your tin)
2 Tablespoons of sugar
Dusting of cinnamon
Some butter for greasing the tin.
- Slice the apples into 0.5 cm slices and toss in sugar and cinnamon.
- Grease your tray well with butter after lining with baking paper.
- Arrange your apple slices at the bottom and sides (optional) of the tin.
- Pour the cake batter on top.
For the crumble layer:
3 tablespoons plain flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1.5 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temp)
Sprinkling of cinnamon
- Mix everything together, rubbing together with your fingertips to create crumbs.
- Sprinkle evenly ontop of cake batter.
- Bake in a preheated 180 deg oven until cooked through and crumles is nice and golden
