This sponge cake adds that touch of fruit that makes it almost irresistible. Perfect for baking at home and having a slice for breakfast.

A delicious sponge cake with all the flavor of this fruit that everyone likes. We also combine a very rich fruit that has great satiating power and is very low in calories with the classic breakfast or snack cake.  A successful mix against any industrial bun.

The good thing about this cake is that you can prepare it throughout the year. Although the harvesting of the apples is in summer, the later ones are optimal to keep in winter.

If you have a cool place at home they can last for months. We usually collect a huge quantity because we have several types of apple trees and we always have a place for them near the winery. The smell when entering through the door is impressive, it makes you want to stay there forever.

The apple easily combines both salty and sweet recipes, it is undoubtedly one of the most appreciated fruits in our culture and a star fruit in northern Spain, especially in Asturias. Any dessert we make with apples is likely to please the staff.

Preparation of the apple cake

  1. In a large bowl beat the eggs with the sugar until they double in volume, when they are well, add and mix the yogurt with the eggs.
  2. We must assemble them very well to give fluffiness to our biscuits, the more airy, the better it will be. Mix the yeast with the flour and put it in the previous bowl, beat again.
  3. In the same bowl we add a pinch of salt and extra soft virgin olive oil. We beat everything until there are no lumps.
  4. It’s time for flavorings. We wash the lemon and grate on top of the cream. Add the vanilla, a pinch of salt and the cinnamon powder. We beat and we have the cream ready, it will be the base of our cake.
  5. We preheat the oven to 180º C.
  6. Peel the apples and remove the center of the apple. We cut into very thin sheets, into thin slices (1 or 1.5 mm). We peel and laminate the apples at the last moment since in contact with the air they oxidize and look bad.
  7. We pour the previous mixture in a container greased with butter. If you have a removable mold (like the one in the step by step photos), it would not be necessary to grease it.
  8. Just before putting it in the oven we add the apple slices on top of the cake. We cover the cake dough with the apple slices starting at the center and in circles until reaching the edge. Everything must be full of apples, if they did not arrive with 3 apples, use another. You will see how it is in the photos of the step by step.

Baking and final presentation of the apple cake

  1. We put the cake in the oven at 180º C for about 45-50 minutes (it depends a lot on your oven). Option of heat up and down, on the rack at medium height so that the heat is uniform and the base is not overheated.
  2. If you don’t have a grid use the tray. Prick the cake with a fork when it takes about 40 minutes and when it comes out dry it will be done.
  3. While it is baking we must watch that the bun is rising evenly, being a little more swollen in the center (it is even admissible that it opens a little in the center, some crack always remains).
  4. If it rises more on one side than on the other, something happens to our oven. Another common problem is that the sponge cake comes out from the sides, normally it happens because we have gone over with the chemical yeast.
  5. It is important to measure it well, with the envelopes there is no problem but if it is in a pot you have to add 12 grams.
  6. At the end of cooking it is best to remove it immediately from the oven so that the heat does not dry it.
  7. We pass it to a surface without unmolding yet and wait for it to harden. Then we unmold it and incidentally we do not burn our fingers.
  8. Many of the apple tarts are topped with a small layer of peach or apricot jam. With the help of a silicone or conventional brush, spread a thin layer of apricot jam. This will give shine, although it will bring more sweetness to the cake. I leave it at your disposal, it is optional.

As you can see, it is a very simple and very colorful cake. I encourage you to try it at home, a recipe that we always make as a family.
