Apple & Honey Cake

Apple & Honey Cake

I wanted to make another apple cake for easypeasylemonsqueezy and I’ve been thinking for a long time how to do this to keep it as easy as possible and to make a cake that you can also eat as a pudding! Well I think I’ve cracked it!

I wanted it to be really moist and so I did a huge amount of research and decided I’d try adding some soured cream into the mix. It is supposed to keep it moist and it certainly flipping does. It also give it a nice dense texture, perfect to have warm with cream, custard or ice-cream and equally as good cold with a brew! It also happens to be sturdy enough for a lunch box!

So any dessert apples will do but the Pink Lady ones are lovely

Ingredients

  • 150g Softened Butter
  • 225g Caster Sugar
  • 4 Free-Range Medium Eggs
  • 225g Self Raising Flour
  • 100g Soured Cream
  • 2 Pink Lady apples, peeled, cored and cubed (or any dessert apples)
  • 1 Tablespoon runny Honey
  • Drizzle of runny Honey for top

Preparation Method

  1. Preheat oven 180C / 350F / Gas4
  2. Line a rectangular cake tin with baking parchment and grease well (10′ x 8′) Guess you could also make it round too and thus 8′ tin) or a Loaf tin 15 x 4
  3. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. I used a stand mixer. It can be done by hand and banish those bingo wings?
  4. Next add one egg at a time, beating throughly, if the mix starts to curdle add a tablespoon of the flour. Carry on adding the eggs until all combined
  5. Add the flour and mix until smooth
  6. Then add the soured cream and apple chunks, giving it a good old stir
  7. Finally stir through 1 tablespoon honey
  8. Tip into the lined baking tin and smooth top
  9. Give it a quick drizzle with honey – I went diagonal stripes
  10. Pop in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until firm to the touch and golden brown (time dependant on cake tin size) If you are using a loaf tin –  bake will be approx 40-45 minutes!
  11. Remove from  the oven, cool for 10 minutes and tip onto a cooling tray
  12. Serve warm with custard / cream or ice cream or leave to cool and have a square with your brew!

Made this to take to my daughter's it was amazing and very quick and easy. Super fluffy but moist (great word!). I might add even more apple next time. Mine needed 45 mins cooking.
