Servings 6


  • 2 apples thinly sliced
  • ½ lemon zest and juice - optional
  • 3 eggs
  • 150 g caster sugar
  • 100 g butter melted
  • 100 ml milk
  • 120 g flour
  • 5 g baking powder
  • 50 g Pine nuts or flaked almonds


  • Preheat the oven to 160˚C.
  • Line an 8 inch round cake pan with baking paper and lightly grease with butter or spray with oil.
  • Put the chopped apples in a small bowl and pour the lemon juice over them.
  • Beat the sugar and eggs until very light and fluffy. Stir in the melted butter, flour and baking powder and finally the milk. add the lemon zest.
  • Toss in half of the apple sliced and pour into a cake tin. Arrange the rest of the sliced apples on the top in a circle pattern. Dust with icing sugar and a sprinkle of brown sugar if desired. Sprinkle the nuts too at this stage.
  • Transfer in the oven and bake for 45-60 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for a while.
  • To serve, sprinkle extra icing sugar. I like serving this cake warmed a little from the oven with some fresh cream or maybe some delicious ice cream.
