Apple Cake (Torta con le mele) Recipe Submitted by mumofstig

Torta con le mele …..cake with apples to you and me, but my Italian friend Titta gave me the recipe

Ingredients for Apple Cake (Torta con le mele):

  • 4oz  butter, softened
  • 8oz self-raising flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 large cooking apples, peeled cored and chopped (not too fine, apple lumps are good!)
  • 5oz sugar
  • ½  teaspoon cinnamon

Method for Apple Cake (Torta con le mele):

  1. Pre-heat oven to Gas 4 – 5 (my oven seems to cook hot so I used Gas 4 ) – 350° to 375°F/180° to 190°C.
  2. Line loaf tin with baking paper.
  3. Bung all ingredients, except apples, into bowl and mix well with electric mixer. (Needs to be a stiff dropping consistency as the apples release moisture as they cook, if too stiff, add a little milk)
  4. Stir apple pieces into cake mix and then spoon into the tin.
  5. Level the top and bake for about an hour.
  6. Pierce with a skewer to check if cooked, I gave mine another 10 minutes.

    I do like my recipes written plainly, if this one tastes as good as it reads, bang goes the diet.
    The easy jams and chutneys book is a little belter, especially as I live quite close to Evesham and my local council have a really good record for tree planting. They’ve included plum, crab apple, eating apples,and brambles evrywhere, and that’s just on the bus lanes, the ring roads are even more diverse.
    Best wishes to Val and her soon to be gone plaster

    Must agree with Linda simple straightforward is the way to go, can’t wait to try it! Pleased that Val is on the mend – pity that she will lose her cook and bottle washer and that she will have to do it all herself again! Sue

    Absolutely DELICIOUS! I followed your recipe and made it but with mine I added warm custard and it was fabulous, you just can’t buy that kind of quality.
