COOKBOOK: Baking & Roasting Miele Cookbook
Absolutely delicious!! Luck was on my side! You may recall that I don’t repeat recipes, however, I had to break the rules just this one time. My camera did not film the last part of the baking and therefore a number of days later I made this apple tart once again and it was just as delicious as the first time! I guess I could use that excuse each time I really like a dish hmmmm…….wont give my family members any ideas! Super easy to make and gone in no time!
2 tablespoons vanilla sugar
3 large eggs, beaten lightly
juice of one half of a lemon
150g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons Jam (apricot or berry)
Pre-heat oven (180C)
Grease in a springform cake tin (26cm). Add a tablespoon of flour, swirl around in the pan, remove any excess flour.
In a mixer (or you can use a handheld mixer) add the butter, sugar, vanilla sugar. When well combined add the egg in slowly. Add lemon juice and mix well.Add the flour and baking powder. Mix well. Add batter to pan.
Peel the apple. Cut each of the sides and leave aside the core which can be chucked out.
Take each piece of apple and slice thinly one direction.Do not go all the way through. Keep each piece intact.
Place the apple pieces on the batter, pressing lightly. Leave as little space between each apple piece as possible. (you may need to cut some of the apple pieces to make them fit).
Bake the cake in moderate oven for 45-50mins. To check if cake is well cooked inside, with a skewers, pierce the centre of the cake, if there is no batter attached to the skewer it is cooked through.
Leave the cake to rest for 5mins.
Place the jam in a small bowl, add 1 tablespoon of hot water and mix well. Brush the warm cake with glazing.
When cake has cooled off, you can then sprinkle icing sugar over it.
