French Apple Cake

I’ll admit, I have a thing for apple cakes – because you don’t have to frost them, and they can be dessert or a companion with your morning coffee. Yep, they’re flexible like that. There’s not a whole lot of flour or sugar in this recipe – as a matter of fact, this cake is basically chunks of apples that are lightly coated with batter and baked. It’s a good cake!

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 4 large Granny Smith apples
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
  1. Butter a 8″ pan and line with parchment or wax paper. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Peel, core, and cut apples into 1″ chunks.
  4. In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy, then add sugar and vanilla.
  5. Mix in half of the flour, then half of the butter, and repeat.
  6. Fold in the apples, and spread into the prepared pan.
  7. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, let cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes then turn out to finish cooling.
