Apple Cake


Easy, light, and juicy apple cake without butter. So good that you want to make it again and again.

Felt like baking a new apple cake today. I have several recipes, but now I want something new. This cake has EVERYTHING! It was a successful experiment.


2 apples 200 g flour
2 Tbsp lemon juice 1 tsp baking powder
3 eggs ¼ tsp salt
150 g walnuts 2 tsp cinnamon
100 g brown sugar 2 tsp ground cardamom
100 g sugar 1 tsp ground cloves



  1. Set the oven to 160° (C) or 135° (C) using the fan function.
  2. Grease a round spring form with oil and cover the mold with baking paper.
  3. Peel and cut the apples into small pieces. Add .2 tbsp squeezed lemon and mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
  4. Chop the walnuts. You decide the coarseness yourself, not too big and not too small!
  5. Separate egg yolk and egg white.
  6. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl, add the chopped walnuts and mix well. Finally, add the spices and mix.
  7. Separate egg yolk and egg white. Whisk the egg whites until you can turn the bowl upside down without the egg whites running down, and set aside.
  8. Using the same whisk, whisk the sugar and egg yolks. It becomes almost like dough – but it doesn’t matter. Then mix the pulp with the apples.
  9. Mix the flour mixture and the apples and ensure everything is mixed well.
  10. Then add the egg whites in 3 batches to the batter and fold it into the batter, don’t beat!
  11. Pour the batter into the mold, and smooth the surface.
  12. Bake for 50 – 60 minutes. Allow cooling slightly before inverting onto a serving plate.

Garnish with a bit of icing sugar and serve.
