Vanilla Apple Cake

Here's another challenge from Sweet and Simple Bakes and here is the recipe . I found the sugar content to be too high and reduced it by 50 g. As the batter I got was pretty stiff, I added about 4 tbsp of Irish Cream Bailey's before topping the batter with the sliced apples.

Here's sharing with you what I did .....


250 g unsalted butter, softened
200 g raw sugar
4 eggs, beaten
250 g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence
4 tbsp Irish Cream Bailey's
2 green apples, cored and cut into wedges
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon


Pre-heat oven at 180 degree C , greased and line an 8" round springform pan.

Beat the sguar and butter together till light and fluffy .

Add in the eggs, flour, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla essence and Bailey's and stir till a smooth batter is obtained.

Lay the cut apple wedges on the top of the batter and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar onto the apple wedges.

Bake for about 60 minutes or till skewer comes out clean.

Remove cake from pan and leave to cool completely on a wire rack before cutting the cake.

Keep cake in air-tight container and refrigerate cake if keeping it for about a week.
