Yesterday I was baking my sponge cake with raspberry and cardamom, and I had some leftover batter. I didn’t want to throw it, so I pour it into a cake pan. Took me two minutes to come up with the idea to put some cinnamon coated apples on top of it. And the result was delicious! The best cinnamon apple cake I have eaten! Just when I thought it couldn’t get better, I drizzled some dulce de leche on top of it. I can’t find the words to describe it!
I don’t have any photo of the whole cake because I couldn’t stop me from eating it before taking the photos…
So, the batter is same as my sponge cake with four flavours, but around half of the amount. Go on and make more batter if you want a thicker cake.
Recipe for cinnamon apple cake with a drizzle of dulce de leche
- 2 eggs
- 1.65 dl sugar
- 50 g salted butter, melted
- 0.65 dl milk
- 2 dl flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1.3 tsp vanilla sugar
- 1 apple with peel
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon, ground
- 1 tsp vanilla sugar
- 2 tbsp dulce de leche
- 1 tbsp whipping cream
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C. Grease a cake pan (approx. 23 cm) with butter and coat with flour.
Melt the butter, pour in the milk, and let it rest until rest of the batter is ready. Whisk eggs and sugar for around 5 minutes until fluffy.
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and sift them into the batter. Turn the flour mix into the batter gently with a spoon or a spatula. Add the milk and butter mixture, and carefully blend the batter. Pour the vatter into the pan.
Mix all the dry ingredients for the topping in a bowl. Cut the apple into thin slices and add them to the cinnamon mixture. Make sure to cover every slice with an even coating.
Decorate the cake with the apple slices and bake for 30-40 minutes, until golden brown. Try with a toothpick to see if its ready.
Let the cake rest for a few minutes and then remove it from the pan. Mix your dulce de leche with some cream to make it thinner and drizzle the cake with it. Enjoy the best cinnamon cake ever!
Try with pears or peaches! Serve with some vanilla ice cream as a luxury dessert.
