Fresh Apple Cake Recipe

This is a family heirloom recipe — sounds simple, but is very much comfort food & a family favourite using fresh apples:

Apple Cake

  • Mix together:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup marg or butter

add and mix:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  1. Thinly slice 3 or 4 apples into a deep microwave safe baking dish
  2. Mix in 1/3 cup brown sugar + sprinkle of cinnamon and microwave for about 5 min (or pot on stove, then pour into deep baking dish).
