Cinnamon Apple Tea Cake Recipe

My kids have an annoying habit of taking two bites of an apple then deciding they are full. I hate throwing away a perfectly good apple, so I would cut away the bite marks and then use the apples to make this cake! It’s got no sugar, and is a great little lunchbox treat or a healthy snack.

WHAT YOU NEED:

2 apples – one thinly sliced and the other one keep whole

65g butter

1 egg

2 tsp vanilla extract

150g self raising flour

1/3 cup milk

3 drops cinnamon essential oil

*Cinnamon topping*

10g butter, melted

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp sugar (optional)

WHAT YOU DO:

(Thermomix version)

  1. Preheat oven to 180*C and line a 4.5cm deep, 20cm round cake pan.
  2. Cut the whole apple into chunks. Place the apple in the thermomix. Chop 4 seconds/speed 5.
  3. Add the butter, egg, vanilla and milk to the bowl. Mix 10 seconds/speed 4.
  4. Add the flour and cinnamon to the bowl. Mix 10 seconds/speed 4 or until combined.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Lay the thinly sliced apples on top and gently press them into the batter.
  6. Put the cake in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through.
  7. Turn cake onto wire rack, keeping the apple side up.
  8. In a small bowl, make the cinnamon topping by mixing the butter, cinnamon and (optional) sugar. Use a pastry brush to drizzle the topping over the apple slices.
  9. Allow to cool and enjoy!
