Super Easy Apple Cake

You wont believe just how easy this cake is to make and it is so moist & delicious it is almost sinful.

Ooops! Half of it was gone before I took the photo - it was THAT good!

This cake is so easy and no one is likely to know that it started with a boxed cake mix. Generally speaking I make my cakes from scratch, however this is so simple and quick and tastes great, that it may just become my go to cake more often. It is my cheat's take on an apple cake a friend's father used to make, who was a Dutch Pastry Chef!

Having a packet cake mix on hand is great for quick unexpected guests or if you rarely bake. You will have no excuses from now on not to have a 'homemade' cake when ever you feel like it and one that will impress your friends and your mother in law! ;)

Just add a egg and a little water to these ingredients and you have a great cake

 

Ingredients:

1 packet butter cake mix
1 egg
1/3rd cup water
800g tinned apples
Cake ready to cook and with the left over apple in the bowl next to it.

  1. Preheat you oven 180C (350 F)
  2. Line your cake tin with baking paper. I used a square tin.
  3. Add cake mix, half the liquid and just one egg and half the and apple pie filling to your mixing bowl.
  4. Mix well until all ingredients are combined.
  5. Pour the cake mix into your prepared tin. I used a square tin.
  6. Top the cake batter with slices of apples and then sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes
  8. Test with toothpick in between apple slices.

It is lovely served warm with whipped cream for dessert or cold with a lovely cuppa.

It is half gone already!


* I did have some apple slices left over, which I just blended together with a good sprinkle of cinnamon sugar and heated it up to serve on the side with mashed potatoes at our next dinner for my husband. Appelmoes (Apple mousse) is a common Dutch custom to accompany grilled meats.
