At this very moment I’m studying for my last French exam next Friday, alors il faut parler français!Pourtant je continue en anglais. When studying very hard I often get a craving for something sweet... well exams can’t really qualify as an excuse, because I ALWAYS crave for something sweet and delicious. I wanted to make something comfort-like, something from the good old days, so I decided to make the apple-cinnamon cake my mom always makes (and my grandmother used to make). Normally it recalls for apples from one of our apple trees, but it’s not really the season now. She makes the cake in a round cake tin, but I halved the recipe and made it in to 4 small individual cakes. I love them still a bit warm with a nice dullop of sour cream.
125 g butter, softened
125 g sugar
125 g flour
1 big apple, in thin slices
4 tbsp sugar mixed with cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius. Beat the butter and sugar well together and add the eggs one at a time. Fold in the flour. Now butter 4 small cake tins and divide half of the batter into them. Then put a layer of apples and drizzle with the cinnamon-sugar. Put the rest of the batter on top and bake for about 25-30 minutes.
