These little cakes are light and very moist. Keep some in the freezer for when unexpected guests arrive or pop in the lunch box for a lovely fruity treat. They are very yummy!
Little Apple Tea Cakes
90g butter (softened)
1/3 Cup caster sugar
1 Teaspoon vanilla essence
2 Tablespoons milk
1 Cup Self Raising Flour
1 medium sized apple (any variety) grated (Peel the skin off first)
1 medium sized apple thinly sliced (Skin off too)
2 Teaspoons sugar (any type)
(Pre heat oven to a moderate heat 180C)
1. In a mixing bowl add butter, sugar, milk, vanilla, flour and eggs. Mix until combined well. (I use my electric mixer for about 2 minutes or so)
2. Fold in grated apple.
3. Divide mixture into 12 cup cakes or 24 patty cakes.
4. Top each cake with 3 or so slices of apple and sprinkle a pinch of sugar on each cake followed by a sprinkle of cinnamon.
5. Bake cupcakes for about 20 mins. (Patty Cakes 18 mins or so)
These can be served warm or cold. They freeze beautifully too. Wonderful for the lunch box!
