Apple is without a doubt one of my favorite fruits to eat or make dessert with. There are so many different apples that all have their own taste.
From really sweet to sour tasting. As you can turn apples into apple sauce or grate an apple you have the perfect replacement for butter.
Apple has a lot of fructose which also results into calories still if you want to reduce your butter intake or when you are dairy intolerant you have an alternative.
My mother would put whole pieces of apple into her cakes. I used grated apple that dissolves in the cake and slices on top to decorate the cake. The cake turns into an apple sponge which is so soft.
To bake a cake you can use a loaf type pan or a round springform. As the batter was more than could fit in my cake pan I used a 12″ inch springform.
To make certain your cake comes out of the springform easily line the bottom and side with parchment paper.
To make it stick to the springform spray and brush a little bit of cooking spray in your springform. This will help the parchment paper stick to the springform.
Another tip that I learned from my mom is to let the cake cool before removing the springform. If you are as curious as I’m to see the end result try a little patience.
Let the cake cool at least 10 minutes before removing the spring.

How to make easy apple cake
To make the apple cake recipe start by lining the base and sides of the spring form with baking paper. Use cooking spray or oil to make it stick to the cake pan.
Preheat oven to 350℉/175°C. Peel and core the apples and cut one apple in about 16 to 20 slices. Sprinkle lemon juice on the sliced apple to prevent it from going brown. Set aside.
Take the second apple. Cut into 4 pieces and grate the apple. It is almost an apple sauce but a little thicker. Put the apple sauce, grated apple in a bowl and add the vanilla extract. Beat the mixture then add the first egg.
Beat until totally absorbed before adding the remaining eggs. Then add the almond milk. Beat until light and creamy and set aside.
Sift the flour in a bowl, add the sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir the dry ingredients through. Add half the flour mixture to wet ingredient mixture and stir well until smooth.
Once the batter is smooth add the remaining flour mixture and keep on stirring the batter until smooth. Do not over mix.
Now it is time to pour the batter into the spring form. Then take the sliced apples and overlap the apples in a circle on top of batter.
Bake the apple cake in the oven for 1 hour then check if the cake is done with a skewer. Let the spring form cool for at least 10 minutes before removing the spring form.
Your apple cake recipe is ready to serve.
