The best apple cake recipe made with fresh apples


FRESH APPLE CAKE

The cake is moist with delicious chunks of apple, fruity and full of flavor and spice. This fresh apple cake recipe is perfect for fall or really any time of the year. I love having it with some ice cream on the side or some tea. SO GOOD and So comforting!

➥2 cups all-purpose flour - 250g or ¹/₄ kg
➥2-3 apples cored, peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces
➥1 teaspoon baking powder
➥1 teaspoon vanilla extract
➥1 teaspoon lemon zest from one lemon

➥2 tablespoons flour
➥1 cup whole milk 240ml

Instructions


Oil a 9-inch baking pan and set aside. Then preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of flour to coat chopped apples and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time, beating each time you add an egg.

Add in milk, vanilla, lemon zest, cinnamon powder and stir to incorporate.

Add the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well to form a batter. Don't overmix - stop mixing when all the flour is incorporated.

Add the chopped apples and gently fold in.

Pour batter into oiled pan and level the top.

Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Recipe Notes

⏩I used Honeycrisp apples here but you could use another kind such as golden delicious apples.

⏩Use evaporated milk instead of regular milk for a richer flavor.

⏩If you do not like chunks of apples in your cake, shred the apples instead.

⏩Once the cake is done, take it out of the oven. Any extra time in the oven will make the cake turn from moist to dry.

⏩Do not over-beat the eggs.

⏩Also, do not over-mix the batter. Once the ingredients are incorporated, you are good to go!
