Apple cake with cinnamon cream icing Easy Food

Serves 8

100g butter
300g caster sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
250g plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and roughly chopped

For the icing:
220g cream cheese, at room temperature
40g butter, at room temperature
150g icing sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract

For the stewed apple topping:
2 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp caramel sauce

  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4. Grease two round 20cm cake tins and line with parchment paper.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla until blended.
  3. Combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and cinnamon in a small bowl. Stir into the butter mixture until blended.
  4. Place the apples in a food processor and pulse for about 30 seconds, or until the mixture resembles chunky apple sauce. Add a splash of water if needed.
  5. Stir the apples into the rest of the ingredients. Divide the batter between the tins and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cakes comes out clean.
  6. Leave to cool in the tins for five minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Beat the cream cheese and butter for the icing until creamy. Gradually beat in the icing sugar and cinnamon until blended. Beat in the vanilla extract.
  8. Spread half of the icing over one of the cakes, then top with the other cake and spread the rest of the icing over the top.
  9. For the topping, place the apples in a saucepan with the cinnamon. Cook over a medium heat for 12-15 minutes until the apples are soft. Stir in the caramel, then remove from the heat and allow to cool before topping the cake.
