If you’re the kind who is thinking about dessert at the last bite of your meal, then you’re reading the right post. Buying desserts n cakes from outside is not very common in my house. I usually prefer making all things my sweet tooth desires. Baking is so simple and so rewarding and the cakes made at home are so much better than store bought ones. You have full control over the quality of ingredients and you probably can make a whole cake (small if not big) for the price of one slice outside. The entire house smells delicious and will make the neighbours pop their heads in to ask whats baking, plus everyone at home will be looking forward to eat that gorgeous cake you made. I’m all about using simple recipes to create that magic in my kitchen. And this Apple Cake is no exception, its everything you’d expect from a home baked cake. One thing I do recommend is investing in an good oven. Once you have one, you’ll want to bake at the drop of a hat. Trust me. I’ve been planning to move into my new house, for a while now, but its taken a bit longer, but the bright side is, I’ve had the time to look out for the best of things for my new kitchen. My heart lies in the kitchen, so I know I’m going to spend the most there. I’ve looked up everything from cookware, kitchen appliances to countertops, sinks, cupboard fittings, light fittings …. all of it. Its too much of a headache to do everything myself where these days there are such beautiful options of ready fitted kitchens. One of my prize finds was this place which gives free appliances with fitted kitchens. I couldnt possibly do a better job myself, in the time and money. Which leaves me with more time to do the one I think I adore most – Bake. I made this cake for a little get together we were having at home. Apple and cinnamon is a match made in heaven and I decided to make this as I was craving a good apple pie but didn’t want to eat the heavy pastry. This cake is light, not to sweet and delivers.


5 apples (chopped, peeled and cored)

1 Tablespoon cinnamon

5 Tablespoons sugar

2 3/4 cups flour, sifted

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup vegetable oil

2 cups sugar

Juice of one lime

2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

4 eggs

1/2 cup milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9″ non stick loose bottom cake tin. Combine apples with cinnamon and sugar, coating well and set aside. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, lime juice, sugar and vanilla. Combine this mixture with the dry ingredients, then add eggs, one at a time. The batter will be quite thick. This is when you add the milk. Mix well. Pour half of batter into prepared pan. Spread half of apples over it. Pour the remaining batter over the apples and arrange the remaining apples on top. Bake for about 1 1/2 hours, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
