The guided recipe for apple cake is so simple and here is the result….a lovely tea cake, deliciously light and crisp on the top. It’s done in 20 seconds in the Thermomix and the only hard part is peeling and quartering three apples to lay on top. The sponge is light and the apples are soft but still firm. Can imagine with whipped cream, it would make an awesome dessert. This afternoon dinner is cooked (sweet and sour fish) mac and cheese with tuna cooked for kids afternoon tea and this apple cake made for lunchboxes. Would not have attempted more than one of these dishes before we had the Thermomix. Even had time to clean up the kitchen while the Thermomix did all the work. Notes for next time : no need to push apples into cake or reduce sugar, use four apples instead of three.Some apples work better, pacific rose too crunchy and granny smiths too tart, gala works well, best not to slice too thick so the apples soften while cooking.
