The best thing about using apple in any dessert is that it appeals to everybody. It has a soft texture, pleasing aroma and mild taste, which everybody will enjoy.
The Apple Cake is one such creation that focuses on apples. Slices of apple are arranged like a beautiful rose, atop a base of plain flour dough, flavoured gently with vanilla and cardamom.
A sprinkling of castor sugar over the apple slices before baking softens the fruit and gives you a nice, icy mouth-feel.
The Apple Cake is best enjoyed warm, with whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream. Try other fruity delights like the Apple Pie and Crunchy Pineapple Cake .
- Combine the plain flour and baking powder in a deep bowl, make a well in the centre, and add the 1 tsp of castor sugar, yeast and 5 to 7 tsp of milk in the depression.
- Mix all the ingredients in the depression. Keep aside for 5 minutes.
- Add the remaining sugar, butter, vanilla essence and cardamom powder, mix well and knead into a soft dough using approx. ¼ cup milk. Cover with a lid or damp muslin cloth and keep aside for 10 minutes.
- Dust the hands with little plain flour and knead again to make it smooth.
- Place the dough into a 175 mm. × 175 mm. (7” ×7”) diameter baking dish and spread the dough evenly by patting it using your fingers.

- Sprinkle castor sugar evenly over it and keep aside for 10 minutes.
- Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°c (360°f) for 25 minutes.
