Recipe Submitted By Rosanna Penilla-Bharucha


  • 2 1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • 1/4 TSP salt
  • 3 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1-1/2 cups of milk or buttermilk or water 
  • 6 TBSP oil (canola or any vegetable oil)
  • 1-1/2 cups of white or brown sugar or mix white and brown
  • 1/2 TBSP vanilla extract 
  • 1 TSP cinnamon
  • 1/2 TSP nutmeg
  • 1 large apple (sliced thinly like wedges)
  • Optional: Mix and add crumble to the top of the cake
  • 1/2 cup butter 
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 TSP ground cinnamon

Simple steps:

  1. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg in a bowl
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F 
  3. In a separate bowl, add 3 eggs, milk or water, oil, sugar, and whisk. Add vanilla extract, whisk until smooth 
  4. Pour over egg mixture to flour mixture. Mix well until smooth. Transfer to a greased baking pan. Add the apples (arrange as you like). 
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the center is almost set, 50 minutes to an hour. Check the center with a toothpick; it's coked when dry. Return to the oven if the toothpick is wet. The loaf looks golden brown, and the smell is in the air. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen. 
  6. Apple cake crumble topping - mix the ingredients gently with your hands to form crumbles, they should not be fine but looks more like in clusters. Add on the top of the apple.
  9. BAKED AT 350 F
