Really Easy, Soft and Moist Apple Sponge Cake



This is one of my favourite sweet recipes for the autumn time. This traybake is such an easy and quick thing to bake - it takes about 30 minutes to prepare, and about 30 minutes to bake and tastes great! The apples make it lovely and moist as well. So here is a really easy and simple recipe for an apple sponge cake I hope you'll enjoy.





You need:
4 eggs
3dl (300ml) sugar
150g melted butter
2dl (200ml) milk
2ts vanilla extract
3ts baking powder
5dl (500ml) flour
+
6 cooking apples
1.5dl (150ml) sugar
generous sprinkling of cinnamon
+
tray (normal sized deep baking tray)
a baking sheet





Whisk the eggs and 300ml of sugar 5-10 min, until light in colour and foamy. Mix in the butter and vanilla extract. Mix baking powder and flour together, and fold into the mixture little by little, adding the milk in between folding the flour in. Line a baking tray with a baking sheet and pour the mixture in.

Peel and chop the apples into thumb-sized pieces, coat evenly in rest of the sugar and cinnamon and add to the top.

Bake for 25-30 min at 200 °C. If using a larger baking tray, reduce baking time accordingly.




Yum yum!

    1. Sorry about that! Dl stands for deciliter, which is 100ml. I'll add that to the instructions, I guess yu aren't the only one who wonders that!

    3. 1 dl = deciliter = 100ml hope that helps :) in terms of flour 100ml is a tad more than 50g.

      I come from a country that uses a metric system, so am just so used to these different ways of measurement I always forget they aren't usually used in UK/US. I've corrected the written instructions to include the ml version :)

  3. This looks so good- big apple fan here and seems like something I could do with my tiny twosome around. I often find it hard to concentrate if they're in the kitchen, so this could be perfect to bake with them :-) #tastytuesdays
