Apple Cake

I cannot remember where this recipe comes from, but I have a hunch that this is a delicious treat that my friend Shereen once made – years ago!


1 cup self raising flour
1/2 c sugar
1 egg
50g margarine
milk to make batter
1 can of apples (I guess it is a small tin)


  1. Cream sugar and margarine.
  2. Add eggs .
  3. Sift flour in and fold into 1. and 2.
  4. Add milk if needed to create the right batter consistency (a bit thicker than cream)
  5. Pour batter into dish and place apple pieces in batter.
  6. Bake at 180 ┬░C – similar to vanilla cake…so perhaps 25 – 30 minutes until bakes through.
  7. Pour sauce over.


Caramel essence
3/4 cup cream (canned cream is OK)
1/4 – 1/2 c sugar

Boil together and poor over apple cake once it comes out of the oven.
