Dutch Farmer's Cake

I remember the times when I used to be a little girl and my grandmother would bake a cake for Sunday coffee. Although I had lemonade with my cake, it still tasted delicious. I really wanted to share this recipe with you. It is a simple recipe, but creates an oh-so delicious cake.



Serves 12

2 apples, peeled and cut into parts
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 lemon (grated and squeezed)

200g soft, unsalted butter
200g fine white sugar

4 eggs
200g Boerencakemeel


Preheat your oven at 150 °C / 302 °F

In a large bowl, combine apple parts with cinnamon, lemon juice and lemon peel.

In another bowl, mix butter, sugar, and a little bit of salt with a handmixer in approx. 10 minutes to a light, creamy mixture. Add eggs and cakemeel simultaneously and mix at the lowest speed to a smooth batter. Then, mix for a few seconds at highest speed to create a fluffy batter.

Fold apple pieces in the batter. Scoop the batter in a baking tray (preferably a cake vorm). Fiill it for about 3/4. Use a spatula to smoothen the top.

Bake the cake until golden brown for 65-75 minutes on the middle rack in a preheated oven.

Take the tray out of the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes. Carefully slide the cake out (use a knife if necessary) and let the cake cool further on the rack.
