Apple Cake with Crumble Recipe

For me, every second Monday is baking Monday. My partner works FIFO (Fly in fly out) on an 8/6 roster. This means every second Monday morning heīll be going away and every second Monday evening heīll be coming home.

One of these coming home Mondays I decided to bake a cake, because letīs face it - men love cake. He was very happy and being a thoughtful girlfriend the next coming home Monday I made another cake. And that is how it started. I had dug myself a hole of cake expectations. Now I have to bake a cake every second Monday. But itīs alright, I also like cake.




Last Monday I made Apple Cake with Crumble.

Now this cake includes three steps. But don't be intimidated, itīs easy.

Ingredients:

Sponge cake
100 g butter
4 eggs
2 dl granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanillin powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
3,5 dl white plain flour

Filling
4 apples
3 teaspoons cinnamon powder
3 tablespoons granulated sugar

Crumble cover
75 g butter
1 dl white plain flour
1 dl granulated sugar
2 dl oats
2 teaspoons vanillin powder
2 teaspoons grounded cardamom

What to do:
Before you start, line a 20 x 30 cm baking tray with baking paper and preheat the oven to 175° C.

I would then recommend to start with preparing the filling and the crumble cover, saving the sponge cake for last as it otherwise might start rising before you have time to get the cake into the oven.

Filling
Peel the apples and cut them into smaller pieces. Mix cinnamon and sugar, put the apple pieces into the mix and stir so that the mix attaches to the apple pieces.

Leave while you prepare the other stuff.

Crumble cover
Melt the butter. Mix the flour, sugar, oats, vanillin powder and cardamom with the melted butter, making it into a crumbly mixture.

Leave while you prepare the sponge cake.

Sponge cake
Melt the butter. Whisk the eggs, sugar, vanillin powder and baking powder to a light mixture using an electric beater.
Add the melted butter and the flour and quickly beat into a smooth mixture.

Pour the mixture into the baking tray.

Now everything is prepared.



Press the apple pieces into the sponge cake mixture.



Spread the crumble mixture over the sponge cake.



Bake in the lower part of the oven for about 35 minutes.

Enjoy with custard or ice cream.

Hi Emilia,
Could you please tell me what the abbreviation dl stands for in your recipe?
Thanks Carol

Why are you using a liquid measurement (dl) for dry ingredients? It makes no sense to me at all.

Isn't dl only used for liquids? So found it rather strange after all my years of cooking to see a recipe for dry ingredients in dls.For any out there still wondering, pour the dry ingredients into a jug and then weigh it and keep that for future use.

Hello Emelia,
I too was confused with the 'dl' measures, but saw comments below that 1 dl = 100 ml (liquid) or is it 1 cup ?
75 g butter
1 dl white plain flour
1 dl granulated sugar
2 dl oats

Google this: apple crumble sponge cake recipe

there are several good alternative recipes with clear measurements - you could substitute with Emilia's ingredients I'm sure. Enjoy, it's a delicious way to get jiggy with apples in winter! Nicky

I would like to make this cake but your measurements are not clear.
If one cup is 2.5 dl, then how much is 1dl and what is the weight of the dry ingredients? How much is 3 , 5 dl milk? - is it 3 or 5 dl, 3to 5 dl or 3.5 dl.
I have never seen this measurement used in Australia before. We use millilitres & litres for liquids, and grams & kilograms for dry ingredients when baking.

What does dl mean??

That recipe looks gorgeous and I will be trying it this weekend! One decilitre = 100ml, so just measure how big your cup is.

Hi Carol!
dl stands for deciliter. One cup equals 2,5 deciliter.
Hope that will help you!

Okay, would love to try this but your conversion of dl is confusing! Googled conversion of deciliter to cups ... didn't work out at all. Would have been best to have posted this using cups measurements so quite sad coz really wanted to try baking it :-(
