This recipe was simple and straightforward, which is one of the main reasons I bookmarked it.
- 3/4 cup flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 4 large Granny Smith apples
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
- Heavily butter an 8- or 9-inch springform pan and place it on a baking sheet.
- In a small bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Peel and core the apples, then dice them into 1/2 inch pieces.
- In a large bowl, beat the eggs until foamy then whisk in the sugar and vanilla. Whisk in half of the flour mixture, then gently stir in half of the melted butter.
- Stir in the remaining flour mixture, then the rest of the butter.
Fold in the apple cubes until they’re well-coated with the batter and scrape them into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top a little with a spatula.
Bake the cake for 50 minutes to 1 hour. Let the cake cool for 5 minutes, then run a knife around the edge to loosen the cake from the pan and carefully remove the sides of the cake pan, making sure no apples are stuck to it.
