Apple plum-cake

Dinner was pretty light the other night, so I decided to bake an apple cake. But I had no eggs, so I looked around the net and found some recipes here and there. I settled on this one here, but then modified it quite a lot. For example I used butter instead of oil and I more than doubled the milk and left out the cinnamon and of course I did not have brown sugar so I used regular sugar. And then I baked it in a plum cake mold…. Basically I made another cake. But the result was not bad at all!

Apple plum-cake

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours

Yield: 6 Servings


  • 4 apples
  • 9 oz flour
  • 4.5 oz sugar
  • 5 oz butter
  • 3/4 cups of milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 spoon of baking soda


  1. So in a mixer I mixed 9 oz of flour, 4.5 oz of sugar, 5 oz of butter, a pinch of salt, 1 spoon of baking powder and about 3/4 cups of milk (I added milk until the batter was smooth yet still thick). Then I diced 4 apples and mixed them into the batter. Poured the batter in the buttered plum cake mold and put in the oven at 375F for a long long time. It took me about 2 hours to cook the cake. I think that adding less milk might make the process faster. Let cool on a rack and serve.
  2. Even without the eggs the cake is moist and nice. A winner!

    I have to say it is indeed quite good! And it improves as it cools down and rest… the day after baking is much better than the baking day!
