Frans’s Dutch apple cake


  1. Pre heat oven at 180C
  2. Put sugar and flour +eggs in a bowl, and mix. Add butter and the milk. Mix well at highest setting. Add raisins/sultanas. 
  3. Butter bottom and side of 26cm cake tin, add mixture and press in apple segments vertically and very close together, till whole surface is covered. (I tend to put them radial, first the most outer ring, and then working towards the centre)
  4. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top.
  5. Put in over for 40 min. Spike with skewer, cake is ready if spike comes out dry.
  6. If top is nice an brown, cover it with alu foil to prevent burning
