This makes a very moist and delicious cake! Topped with apples and with a stewed apple centre.
Add the apple to a saucepan with the additional sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon and enough water to cover. simmer this until the apple slices are just turning tender and carefully remove those. Leave the other apple pieces cooking until they turn very soft and all the liquid has gone.
Cream the butter and sugar. Beat in 1 egg, the vanilla, half the milk and half the flour. Add the other egg, remaining milk and flour. Beat together until mixture is creamy.
Prepare a cake tin. Spoon half the mixture out into the tin, then spread the stewed apple mixture over this. Spoon on the remaining cake mixture. Top with the slices of apple and sprinkle cinnamon on top.
Bake at 180ºC for about 30- mins until the cake has cooked through. This cake will be quite moist due to the apple filling. So you may need to turn the heat down a bit to stop it getting too brown on top while it’s finishing cooking.
