How to make an apple cake?

For the Cake:

1. Start by sifting and whisking the dry ingredients together.

2. Then, in a large bowl or stand mixer, mix the wet ingredients until well combined.

3. Gradually add and mix in the dry ingredients until fully combined.

4. Fold in the apples, and then divide the mixture evenly into four 6-inch pans that have been buttered and floured (using cake strips can be helpful).

5. Bake at 350F for around 40 minutes or until the centers are fully cooked.

For the Buttercream:

1. Begin by heating the butter over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until it turns a rich caramel color. Transfer it to a bowl and allow it to cool to room temperature.

2. Next, add confectioner’s sugar, cream, and vanilla to the bowl. Finally, mix in the spices.

For the Caramel:

1. Whisk all the ingredients together in a small saucepan.

2. Heat the mixture over medium-low heat, stirring continuously.

3. Cook for 7-8 minutes.

For the Apple:

1. To create an apple-shaped cake, first bake half circle cake pieces in a semi-circle cake pan for about 12 minutes.

2. Trim the tops and pipe buttercream between two halves to assemble a sphere.

3. Cover the outside in buttercream and freeze.

4. Meanwhile, roll out fondant and add red food coloring to create the skin and green food coloring to create the stem. Cover the cake in red fondant and shape a leaf with the green fondant. Add a stem from a real apple and a fondant leaf.

5. Finally, dip the apple halfway in caramel and place it on top of the cake to complete the apple cake.

For the Assembly:

1. Place the cake on a cake stand and pipe buttercream and caramel ganache between each layer.

2. Finish off by dripping caramel ganache over the top.

3. Finally, add the apple to the center of the cake.

Tips for making an apple cake

  • For best results, chill the apple before shaping it to prevent it from falling apart.
  • If you’re using different pan sizes, adjust the recipe accordingly to ensure proper baking and layering.
  • To achieve flat and moist cake layers, consider using cake strips. You can purchase them or create your own using foil and paper towels. Check out our blog post for more information.
