Anne-Marie's Apple Cake

I work with a wonderful french lady who was nice enough to share her grandmother's recipe for a deliciously moist apple cake with me. The original recipe does not call for any cinnamon so the only change I made was add just a touch of cinnamon, and when I buttered the pan, I sprinkled cinnamon-sugar into the pan and swirled it around to cover the sides. It was delicious and worked out perfectly even though I thought it looked like too many apples when mixing the batter.. have no fear, it will work out great. I was happy to use my bundt pan, the poor neglected thing.

Anne-Marie's Applecake Recipe

3 eggs
250 g flour
150 g sugar
100 g butter
1 tablespoon baking powder
4 large apples, peeled, cored, and cut into small pieces
vanilla flour - 1 bag (I just used vanilla extract here)
optional - 1 tablespoon rum

2 tablespoons sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon for pan

Preheat oven to 375. Butter a bundt pan and pour in cinnamon sugar, and shake and swirl until all of the sides and bottom are covered. In a large bowl, mix melted butter with sugar and add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla extract and rum if using. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking soda (and cinnamon) and then add into your egg mixture. Add the apples. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Loaf pan can also be used.

The directions were a little unclear with how hot and how long to bake the cake so I believe I took the average of the two temperatures, and baked the cake for about 45 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy this delicious, moist amd simple apple cake! Thanks Anne-Marie! The Husband loved this recipe and so did Marco.

  2. Thank you for pointing out that mistake. I would go with the original ingredient list - baking powder. I will try and track down the original recipe and update this post.

  3. Thank you very much! I will stay tuned then. :-)

  4. I won't be home for a few hours though, so go ahead andbake out. I can tell from looking at the recipe that the ingredients are copied straight from her original recipe (since I never use grams)... I didn't want to keep you waiting too long! Oh and I just did some research on baking powder vs soda and I am sure powder is required here! Good luck. I remember this being a very delicate tasty cake. I hope you enjoy.

  5. Oh, that's no problem, take your time! I figured out too, that 1 tablespoon of soda would be too much for this amount of batter and apples, so I would definitely go for baking powder as you advise. And thanks for the research you did for me, sorry for bothering you! I am enjoying your gallery here, OMG, aren't you the one gifted lady... Fabulous! Fabulous!

  6. I came back to report that the cake is soooooo goooood!!!!!! Thanks to Anne-Marie from us as well. I changed the recipe slightly to my taste: soaked chopped apples in lemon juice, then drained them and tossed with cinnamon before adding to the batter. And I added also zest of one orange. Mmmmmmm.....
