A soft and tender apple cake topped with lots of walnut crumbs! Walnuts add so much taste and texture to the crumble. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee or milk :).

Ingredients for the apple cake:

  • 150 g butter
  • 140 g caster sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 125 g soured cream
  • 220 g plain flour
  • 1 and 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 – 4  medium-sized apples

All ingredients should be at room temperature.

Peel, core and quarter the apples.

Cream the butter and the sugar together in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition (the batter will curdle slightly at this step, but it won’t make any difference to the finished cake). Add vanilla and mix. Add the sifted flour and baking powder, then soured cream, and stir with a spatula until combined.

Prepare a baking pan with a diameter of 23 cm lined with baking paper. Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Top with the apples, followed by the crumb topping.

Bake at 160ºC for 45 minutes or longer, until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove from the oven, and cool.

Ingredients for the walnut crumble:

  • 75 g plain flour
  • 75 g walnuts or pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 60 g butter, melted

Melt the butter in a small pot. Add the remaining ingredients and mix with a fork or rub between your fingers to get the crumble.
