French Apple Cake

French Apple Cake

This is an incredibly moist and simple French cake with an abundance of fresh apples, there's just enough batter to hold all of the fruit together. You can also substitute pears or apple pears, so this is a perfect recipe to use with fall produce. 

French Apple Cake
~ Adapted from Around My French Table

3/4 cup (95 g) Whole Grain Red Fife Flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
4 medium sized apples 
2 large eggs
3/4 cups (150 g) sugar 
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup (115 g) butter, melted and cooled

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 8 or 9 inch springform pan (or cake pan) and line the bottom with parchment paper.

Whisk flour, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl and set aside. 

Peel and core the apples. Roughly cut into 1 inch cubes, you should have approximately 4 heaping cups of apples weighing roughly 400g.

In the bowl of a standing mixer or with handheld beaters, beat the eggs until frothy. Add sugar and vanilla and continue beating until batter is smooth and pale yellow in colour.

Mix in half of the dry ingredients and once it's incorporated, add half of the melted butter and continue mixing. Repeat with the remaining dry ingredients and melted butter and mix until the batter is smooth and thick. With a rubber spatula fold in the apples until completely coated with batter.

Scrape cake batter into prepared pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes until top is golden brown and a knife inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool before removing from pan, this cake can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature.

  • Made this cake last night. Added ginger and nutmeg and sprinkled almonds on top. Served it with a bourbon caramel sauce and whipped cream. It was fabulous. Will definitely make it again.

  • Liked this but way too sweet for us. I added ginger and would add a bit more next time. Also I know it is supposed to barely cover the apples but I will make just a bit more batter next time. I second the request fir all measurements in grams/ml please.

  • This cake is heavenly! I made it today but, oh well, now I have to be careful to not eat the whole cake tonight … oh my! (I will share “a little bit” 😂

  • Thank you for sharing this and so many other recipes. I have one request : in future, would you please indicate the weight of an ingredient rather than a rough amount. In this instance I would love to know what the weight of 4 medium sized apples are. My medium size may be different to yours. But 450gms of apples is 450gms of apples. Thank you.

  • This cake was sensational. Perfect and light. I added some plums to the apples and served it with whipped cream. Not a crumb remained…
