Vanilla Apple Cake ~ September Bake

This month’s recipe for Vanilla Apple Cake is perfect for September when autumn is just around the corner and the orchards are brimming with a huge variety of delicious apples! Comfort food plays a big part in the autumn and winter months and this cake delivers just that, with its deliciously moist vanilla sponge and chunky apple wedges. Savour this rustic looking cake with hot custard or ice cream but it could stand well on its own to be enjoyed with a nice cup of tea or coffee.

The recipe for Vanilla Apple Cake can be found here.


If you have any questions or queries, please leave a comment under the recipe. Rosie and I will endeavour to reply as soon as possible.

Arundathi said...

oh that does look great! i'm sure i can't wait until the end of the month! :) i vote we make this a fortnightly event! ;)

Ivy said...

A cake with apples sounds like a great idea and I love apples in cakes. Can I substitute demerara sugar with something else (brown sugar) as I am not sure that I can find it?

Maria said...

Hi everyone

Great to see some of you already joining in our next bake and I can assure you this cake is delicious!

Hi Ivy
You can definitely substitute the demerara sugar for any sugar you have, brown sugar, granulated sugar etc

Hi Arundathi

Whilst we would really enjoy taking this to another level of a fortnightly event both Rosie and I feel at this present time it would be in Sweet and Simple Bakes favour to keep to a monthly bake. This is due to commitments and time factors. However we do not rule this out for the future!

What a beautiful cake. The texture looks perfect.

Dee said...

I've been doing some cooking and the weekly bread baking, but haven't really had time for much exploratory baking :(

This looks like something that would also work for the kiddo's lunchbox so I'm going to make this happen!

Hi Dani

If you don't have any apples then I guess blueberries should be ok but apples really do work wonderfully in this cake ;o)
