Apple Crumble Cake Recipe

Apple Crumble Cake recipe.
"What cake do you make?" my daughter will ask every time she sees me busy baking in the kitchen. So taking up the challenge, I have to try new recipes. Otherwise, my answer will always be "Oh, it's a normal butter cake." Well, this the outcome of some my trials and errors. It turns out to be my family's favorite.  My two girls finished this Apple Crumble Cake within 2 hours after dinner!

Apples and sultanas are spreaded evenly on top

Ready to serve

For the Base
50g or 1/4 cup butter
75g or 6 tbsp caster sugar
1 egg beaten
115g or 1 cup self raising flour, shifted

For the Topping
80 g or 2/3 cup self raising flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
40g  or 3 tbsp butter
25g or 2 tbsp caster sugar

2 cooking apples , peeled, cored and sliced
60g or 1/3 cup sultanas (raisins)

1. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Grease a deep 18cm/7in springform tin (pan) and line with parchment
2. To make the topping, sift the flour and cinnamon into a bowl. Rub the butter into the flour using your
    finger tips or a pastry cutter until it resembles bread crumbs. Then stir in the sugar. Set aside.
3. To make base, put the butter, sugar, egg and flour into a bowl and beat for 1-2 minutes, or until
    smooth. Spoon into prepared tin.
4. Mix together the apple slices and sultanas, and spread them evenly over the top.
5. Sprinkle with the toppings.
6. Bake for about 1 hour. Cool in tin for 10 minutes before turning out on to wire rack to cool. Sprinkle with cinnamon and caster sugar and decorate with slices of red dessert apples.
Serves 8-10

* I added extra raisins and sprinkle with a castor sugar only. I use a normal cake tin instead of the springform type.
