The Quick and Easy Apple cake is a delicious cake that is moist, fluffy and has the wholesome flavor of apples and cinnamon and the best part it is made from rice flour. Using rice flour was an accidental discovery, when an illusions of flour happened as I opened the freezer to pick the all purpose flour, but picked rice flour instead. The result was delicious.

Note this recipe is low on its sugar. If you need that added sugar, sprinkle with powdered sugar on top, it tastes delicious. 

I have shared how to make this cake egg free (eggless) as well using the Flaxmeal Egg Replacer.

How to make Quick & Easy Apple Cake Recipe

  1. To begin making the Quick and Easy Apple Cake Recipe, preheat the oven to 180 C. Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan or a 9 inch circular spring foam pan. Keep the pan aside.

  2. Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl and keep aside.

  3. In a large bowl or the bowl of the stand mixer, beat the eggs (flaxmeal egg replacer), oil, vanilla, cream, milk, sugar and rum until fluffy. Add in the flour mixture and beat until well combined. Add in the apples and keep a few apples aside to place it on the top.

  4. Scrape the batter into the greased pan and spread out evenly. Place a few sliced apples on the top of the cake batter and slightly press it down to coat it with the cake batter.

  5. Bake the apple cake in the preheated oven, until the tester like toothpick or a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, for about 40-45 minutes.

  6. Once the cake is baked, remove from the oven and allow the cake to cook completely.

  7. Serve the Quick and Easy Apple Cake as a snack for kids or as a tea time snack.
