Cinnamon Apple Tea Cake

Share

If you are looking for a cozy baking project this week, this Cinnamon Apple Tea Cake is for you. This beautiful cake has all the comfort flavors channeled into a moist and tender cake filled to the brim with juicy apples. There’s a bit of chopping and slicing work involved here, but don’t be intimidated. The recipe is easy enough for a novice baker to tackle.

A springform comes in handy here, but a regular cake pan will do just fine in its place. Just make sure to leave enough overhang on the parchment paper to make pulling the cake out of the baking pan easier. While the jam glaze is optional, I would recommend adding it as it provides a lovely, shiny finish. I love this cake with Granny Smith apples, but Honeycrisp, Gala, or your favorite baking apple will do the trick. 

To make the Cinnamon Apple Tea Cake, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Cinnamon Apple Tea Cake

1

Heat oven and prepare baking pan

5

Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Butter an 8-inch springform pan, then line it with parchment paper.

2

Prepare apples

5

Peel and core the apples. Chop half the apples into ½-inch pieces. Slice the other half into ⅛-inch thick slices.

3

Add melted butter, sugar and cinnamon

2

Place the chopped and sliced apples into separate bowls. Drizzle each bowl with half the butter, sugar, and cinnamon. Toss to coat well, and set aside.

4

Combine dry ingredients

1

In a large bowl, whisk together 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, and ½ teaspoon salt.

5

Combine wet ingredients

2

In a separate bowl, whisk together 4 tablespoons melted unsalted butter, ½ cup vegetable oil, 2 large eggs, ¾ cup white sugar, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.

6

Combine wet and dry ingredients

2

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until all the flour is incorporated.

7

Add chopped apples

1

Gently fold in the chopped apples.

8

Transfer batter to baking pan

2

Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth the top.

9

Decorate with apples

2

Top the batter with the sliced apples, overlapping each other by ¼ inch.

10

Bake

50

Bake the cake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cover the top loosely with foil if you have to bake longer.

11

Let cool

Transfer the cake to a wire rack, and release the sides of the springform pan.

12

Heat glaze

To a small microwave-safe bowl, add 1 ½ tablespoons apricot jam and 1 tablespoon water. Microwave for 20 seconds, then mix to combine.

13

Glaze

1

Brush the top of the cake with the glaze.

14

Serve

Let the cake for at least 30 minutes before slicing the cake with a sharp knife. Serve the cake warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
