German Cinnamon Apple Cake


This is a moist dense cake that is good on its own but also great topped with icing. It keeps well and is good for any occasion.


Serves: 24 

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (250ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 cups (440g) white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 4 cups apples - peeled, cored and diced

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour5min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and flour one 20x30cm cake tin.
  2. In a mixing bowl; beat oil and eggs with an electric mixer until creamy. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat well.
  3. Combine the flour, salt, bicarb soda and ground cinnamon together in a bowl. Slowly add this mixture to the egg mixture and mix until combined. The batter will be very thick. Fold in the apples by hand using a wooden spoon. Spread batter into the prepared tin.
