Apple Cheese Cake

This recipe is from Ann of anncoojournal - link here.

I tried it once and forgot to add baking powder and ground almond but it still tasted great. And then on my second try, added the baking powder and ground almond. The baking powder did not really make a difference to the cake but when I baked it a third time to take to work, I omitted the ground almonds as I felt the almonds made the cake drier. My colleagues loved it and so do we, so give it a try!

2 large green cooking apples (I used brambley) cut into cubes
100g Butter
80g Caster sugar
3 Eggs, 70g each
125g Cream cheese
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
Grated of 1 lemon zest
1 tbsp Lemon juice
120g Plain flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
50g Ground almond (I omitted)
Desiccated coconut(I omitted)


1.  Cream butter and caster sugar until fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time and beating well after each addition.

3.  Add cream cheese and continue to beat until the mixture is smooth.

4.  Add in the remaining ingredients and the apple cubes and stir well with a hand whisk.

5.  Pour the batter into 7 inch cake tin.

6.  Bake in the preheated oven at 180 deg C for 25 - 30 minutes. Remove and leave to cool before serving.

Note: It tastes creamier if left overnight in the fridge!
