Mother’s Day Apple Cake

A few weeks ago I purchased a new ceramic springform cake pan and prior to today, I had yet to break it in. My mum has been asking me for months now to make an apple cake since she has been craving it. So, I decided to bake her one when my parents went away for a little trip this weekend. She had no idea that I had been planning to make her anything for Mother’s Day and upon completing my baking, I sent her a nice picture of my cake with a little sign saying “Happy Mother’s Day!”

My recipe for the Apple Cake is a mixture of many recipes and is easier than most found online or in cookbooks because I did not want to use many different types of flours or have a recipe involving too many steps.


Apple Cake


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 large Honeycrisp apples (shredded)
  • 1/2 cup Sultana/golden raisins
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in one bowl. Mix ingredients until nutmeg and cinnamon evenly distributed throughout flour.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream the brown sugar and butter together.
  4. Add vanilla to creamed sugar and then add one egg at a time to mixture.
  5. Combine the flour mixture slowly into wet ingredients. Make sure all flour is mixed completely into the wet ingredients.
  6. Add shredded apples and golden raisins to cake batter and then pour batter into springform cake pan.
  7. Bake cake for minimum 1 hour or until cake tester comes out cleanly.
  8. Let cake cool before serving and enjoy!
