Apple Cake

My sister found this one from Mary Berry and it has become my go-to cake for a quick treat….


  • 10 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 granny smith apple peeled & cut into slices
  • powdered sugar

Preparation Method: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 325F.  Lightly grease a deep 8″ round loose-bottomed cake tin.
  2. Add the flour, baking powder, sugar, eggs, almond extract and melted butter into a bowl and mix well until blended, and then beat for a minute.  
  3. Spread half this mixture into the prepared tin and then lay the apples on top of the mixture in the tin, making sure they do not touch the side.
  4. Spoon the remaining mixture over the apples. This is a tricky thing to do, but just make sure that the mixture covers the center well as it will spread out in the oven.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour or until golden and coming away from the sides of the tin. If the top browns too quickly cover with foil.
  6. Leave to cool in the cake tin for 15 minutes before removing from the pan. Sprinkle icing sugar over the top and serve warm or room temperature.
