This chunky apple cake is super easy to make. You hardly need any skills at all. You just need to cut some apples, stir some ingredients and operate an oven. Piece of cake, right?
Autumn is here but I’m not too sad about it. Summer is nice. But I love cuddling up indoors, when the weather outside is cold and wet. With the turn in the weather, the growing season is also coming to an end which means that the fruit season has started. There’s a fresh supply of pears, berries, grapes and of course apples, to take advantage of.
People have been growing and eating apples for thousand of years. Even after all these centuries, apples remain a popular fruit and they exist in many different varieties. Surprisingly enough, most of those varieties descend from the same species of wild apple. This wild apple, called Malus sieversii, is native to Central Asia. These apple trees still grow in the wild, in the mountains of Kazakhstan. Sadly they are now in danger of going extinct.
Luckily you won’t need any rare kind of apples from far away countries, to make this cake. Any apples you have lying around will do. I tried this recipe with ripe apples, mealy apples and even unripe windfall apples. I got good results every single time. Preparation is very simple, making this recipe a safe choice for any novice baker.
This chunky apple cake is light and fluffy but not overly sweet. This allows for the apple flavour to really take centre-stage. A touch of cinnamon adds extra depth of flavour.
