Delicious Apple Cake (Torta di Mele)

Apple Cake

My favorite comfort dessert is this delicious apple cake (torta di mele). I hope it becomes yours, too. It’s soft, fully loaded with apples, and simple to make.

It is the typical grandmother’s cake, a memory that most of us keep in the drawer of our childhood memories.

Apple Cake

This particular apple cake is perfect for breakfast for the whole family, a snack with friends, or a dinner dessert (in this case, simply accompany it with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream).

I made this cake this morning, and half is already gone for breakfast.

You know when you wake up very early in the morning and roll over and over in bed until you decide to get up? That was this kind of morning. When I finally did get out of bed and accepted fate, I was thinking about what to prepare for breakfast. My grandmother popped into my mind, so naturally, apple pie popped into my mind. Luckily, I had all the ingredients at home.

How to make Delicious Apple Cake (Torta di Mele).

The procedure is very simple and fast. Just follow a few simple steps to bake a soft and fragrant cake. The apples I chose are delicious golden organic ones. For this recipe, the apples should be peeled, cored, and sliced ​​.

By removing the core with the right tool, it will make it easier to cut them into cubes.

This cake is made following four simple steps: beat the eggs with the sugar until they are frothy, then add the melted butter at room temperature, mix everything well, add the flour and the sifted baking powder, and at the end, I add some cream (Half and half instead of milk). After everything is well blended, add the apple cubes and transfer the mixture to a baking tray with parchment paper. Cover the surface of the cake with granular sugar.
