Apple Poppy Seed Cake

Apple Poppy Seed Cake

Last month I was asked for a suggestion of a cake with apples and poppy seeds so, after running a couple of tests, I came up with the right recipe, quick and simple. It's a soft, fluffly and savoury cake. The poppy seeds will add a bit of crunchiness to the texture but, if you don't like that, you can skip or replace with walnuts.

Ingredients

Butter
100 g
softened, at room temperature
Sugar
150 g
Egg
3 pieces
Vegetable oil
6 tbsp
White flour
2 cups
Baking powder
10 g
Poppy seeds
4 tbsp
or walnuts
Vanilla Extract
1 tsp
you can also add some lemon zest, if you want
Apples
3 pieces

Step by step

1

Wash, peel, core the apples and cut into medium sized cubes.

2

In a bowl, combine the softened butter and the sugar, mix well with a whisk or the mixer.

3

Then add the 3 eggs in turn, stirring well after each one.

4

In the same way, incorporate 6 tbsp oil, one after the other.

5

Now stir in the flour, baking powder and poppy seeds, mix well. 

The dough should be like yogurt or like thick sour cream.

6

At the end, add in the vanilla extract and the apples, mix to combine.

7

Line a springform tin with parchment paper, this one is 28 cm in diameter. Tip batter into the tin and even out with a spoon.

8

Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 45-50 minutes or until nice golden brown.

Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 1 hour before serving.

9

Carefully unmould the cake, slice and taste, it's so delicious and flavourful.

Enjoy!
