Method

Apple Cake With Calvados is a community recipe submitted by evbaeten and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Preheat the oven to 170°.
  • Mix the softened butter with the sugar until you get a smooth mixture. Mix the two kinds of flower together in a bowl. Add the four eggs alternately with the flower mixture, beating well after every adding. Stir in the vanilla sugar.
  • Now peal 1.5 or 2 apples (whichever amount suits you) and cut them into cubes and add them to the dough. Splash in some calvados to your taste (I tend to use rather a lot of it). The dough will have a very fragrant smell by now. Pour the dough into a greased 22 cm round baking tin.
  • Now peal the rest of the apples, and cut it into half-moon parts. Arrange the parts on top of the dough forming circles.
  • Bake in the oven for 45 to 50 minutes. Let the cake cool in the tin, then turn out onto a plate.
