A family classic: Apple Cake

Hi guys!

Earlier this week, Dr.Oetker hosted another wonderful event with a cooking demo by pastry chef Sven Coryn and a bake-off between bloggers. The theme? Family recipes. So I brought my Dad πŸ™‚ Together, we made some yummy little Apple Cakes with real star quality πŸ˜‰

Although I always have fun at events, this was the most fun event in the whole year for me. It was pure happiness. Father-daughter quality-time πŸ˜‰ That’s also exactly what Dr.Oetker stands for: baking with family. I think their last event truly honored that moment. I hope they’ll host events like this more often and if they do, I’ll definitely bring my Dad! I’ve had so much fun I almost pied my pants xD Sorry for oversharing here… Dr.Oetker had a photobooth at their event. Daddy and I of course had to make a picture. This is the result:

  2. Mix together butter, vanilla sugar and caster sugar.
  3. Split the eggs and add the yolk.
  4. Add the flour and the baking powder. Mix until combined.
  5. Whip the egg whites and add in 2 times to the batter.
  6. Skin the apples. Cut 1 into small pieces and the other into slices to make our stars.
  7. Grease the baking tin with the baking spray.
  8. Put a little bit of the batter in the baking tin.
  9. Stuff with apples.
  10. Put batter on top of the apple pieces to hide the apples. The baking tins should be filled for +- 3/4th.
  11. Bake for 20 minutes.
  12. Bake for about another 5 – 10 minutes at 160 Β°C.
  13. Cut stars out of the apple slices.
  14. Bake in a pan and sprinkle some dark brown sugar on them to caramelize the apples.
  15. Put the stars on top of your little cakes.

See, I told you they were star quality πŸ˜‰ All thanks to this great chef:
