Old but gold

Recipe#18: apple cake


“Cakes are like books, there are new ones you want to read and old ones you want to reread.” (Ellen Rose)


300 gr (2 cups) flour

300 gr (1 ½ cups) sugar

200 gr (1 cup) butter – room temperature

4 eggs

3 – 4 apples (sliced)

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract


Combine the softened butter with the egg yolks until creamy, add the sugar and keep mixing. In a separate bowl beat the egg whites until stiff with a pinch of salt and then add to the butter mixture. Gradually incorporate the flour, baking powder and vanilla. Lastly, add the sliced apples.

Grease and dust a 24 – 26 cm (9 – 10 inches) round cake pan. Pour the batter in the pan and bake at 180° (350 F) for 50 minutes.
