    For the apples
  • 4 big apples cut in squares
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons of butter
For the cake
  • 2 room temperature eggs
  • 100 g white sugar
  • 120 grams white flour
  • 100 grams of room temperature butter + some more for the cake pan
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
For the crumb
  • 5 tablespoons of flour
  • 3 big tablespoons of white sugar
  • 3 big tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 4-5 tablespoons of melted butter
  • a pinch of salt


  1. You should start by preparing the apples. Peel, then cut them in squares. Place them in a pan along with 1-2 tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of brown sugar, and cook them on low heat until they soften. After they are done, let them cool until you prepare your cake mixture; 
  2. Mix the sugar along with the room temperature butter until you get a cream consistency (about 10-15 minutes depending on your mixing speed);
  3. Add the eggs and mix until well combined;
  4. Add the baking powder and the flour and combine all of the ingredients;
  5. Now carefully add the apples into the cake mixture, and stir gently with a wooden spoon; 
  6. You can now prepare the crumb by mixing the dry ingredients first then add the melted butter. Stir well with a tablespoon until everything is well combined;
  7. In a cake pan place a parchment paper then grease it with some butter all over;
  8. Preheat the oven at 185ºC;
  9. Put the mixture into the cake pan then add the crumble on top;
  10. Put it in the oven for 33-40 minutes until it passes the toothpick test (meaning that you should insert a toothpick in the cake and it should come out clean).
