Chookie's Apple Cake Tart
« on: May 20, 2015, 01:30:04 am »
Converted from a recipe by Jo Weeks and using 'Quicker than a cake mix' TM recipe for the cake.


Topping
85g plain flour
100g brown sugar (I used dark muscovado)
grind sea salt
115g butter, cubed

Preheat oven 175C.  Grease a 33 x 22cm pan.  (line with baking paper, coming up over 2 sides for easy removal).

Firstly make caster sugar for the cake mix:  Add raw sugar to TM bowl.  Mill 3 secs/speed 9.  Remove from the bowl and set aside until needed.

If your brown sugar for the topping has lumps, place into TM bowl along with the flour and mill for a 2-3 seconds, turning the dial up to 10.  Not for too long, just to get rid of lumps.
Add rest of topping ingredients into TM bowl.  Combine 6 secs/speed 4.  Remove to a bowl.  No need to clean out bowl.

Cake
3 eggs
120g cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
125g S.R flour
160g caster sugar

Put all cake ingredients in TM and mix for 20 secs/speed 5.    Scrape down bowl.
Mix 10 secs/speed 5.  Pour into prepared pan.

Apple mixture
6 apples, peeled, cored and sliced (used pink lady)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 tsp lemon juice

Toss together the apple mixture ingredients and spread over the cake batter.
Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the apples evenly.  Bake 35-60mins (mine took 35), until a skewer comes out clean.

Cool completely before serving.  Dust with icing sugar if desired.

Thank you both. We love all sorts of apple desserts and I know this will be no exception.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Thanks Julie, recipe set out so it is easy to follow and beautiful photo. 
I reheat mine before serving and it holds together well.

Thankyou. :D 

Chookie, from the freezer I reheated a slice in my Turbo oven on very low heat (didn't want it to dry out and it didn't), while I was making a cappuccino.  It turned out as new.  Great recipe this one.  ;D

thanks JulieO, the recipe and finished product look great. I think this is something my DS would like  so might make and keep in the freezer for him for late night snacks.

I made this today using Rhubarb that a friend gave me yesterday.It's probably more moist than the apple version but even so it's delicious.I didn't use the cinnamon.
DH and I had some for dessert with pouring cream, :)

CC, I was wondering how it might go with other fruit.  Thanks for the review using rhubarb.

I bet it would be lovely with custard too Cornish.   :D

I may try an apricot version when I've used up the apple one, I think that would be nice too.  ;D
