nourish: apple tea cake

I don't know where I found this recipe originally*, I just know if I lose the envelope I scrawled it on, I will kick myself. So here 'tis, for prosperity.

Grab these:
3/4 cup plain wholemeal flour
3/4 cup self-raising flour
3/4 cup caster sugar
125grams butter, melted
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
two(ish) apples, diced

Do this:
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (moderate). Grease and line a springform tin.
2. Combine everything, except the apples, in a bowl.
3. Press 3/4 of the batter into the base of the tin.
4. Sprinkle apples over the top, followed by the remaining batter. For added yum, sprinkle over some raw sugar mixed with cinnamon.
5. Bake for 40-50 mins, until golden. Cool in tin (if you can wait that long).
Do you like my 50c Johnson Australia plate? Yeah, so do I. Score!

*If this is your recipe, please let me know so that I can praise you like I should.


  1. Wow so simple. and it looks delcious.
    Love the Johnson plate too.

  2. We have an apple glut at the moment. Both my partner and I bought them while out and about and last night it was a curry, with apple, and an apple crumble to follow.

  3. Zara, it really is so easy and yum! katie, i'm intrigued about your apple curry, sounds delish :)

  4. Can't go wrong baking with apples :)
    Love the J plate, I found the dinner size of that design in NZ of all places.
