Thermomix Apple cake

5 from 2 votes
This Thermomix apple cake has a fluffy sponge and a hint of cinnamon. It is absolutely mouthwatering and such a great treat for a rainy day. Try this recipe because it is so absolutely easy to make. Apple cake reminds me of my other grandma, Oma Resi. She had a big apple tree in her garden and I remember visiting her during the autumn and the whole house smelled like apple cake as soon as I walked in. I used to climb that apple tree and all my cousins played hide and seek in the garden. The tree was my prime hiding spot. When we were exhausted from playing in the garden we would come back inside and eat the delicious and juicy apple cake. A great tip my grandma gave me originally came from Friedrich Schiller. She was an advocate of simplicity and said that the simplicity is the result of maturity, which means that if you are able to keep things simple you show real maturity. I feel this cake really fits that saying because, although it is very simple it just demonstrates real mature and great taste. Now let's not get too poetic. Back to the cake. I like to keep my cakes original and simple because I think clean flavours in a cake can be much more convincing than a complex cake that took all day to prepare. The simplicity of the cake does not mean it is boring because you have so many options to decorate it nicely or vamp it up by serving a delicious extravagant tea with it. Especially Thermomix apple cake offers you the ability to experiment with the way you incorporate the apples into the cake. It could be done in whole or in cubes, strips or even as a feather pattern. This is what makes every apple cake original. Use your imagination to create a very nice geometric shape in your apple cake. I kept mine quite simple to teach you how to make the cake with your Thermomix. Tell me about your favourite apple cake in the comments. Would love to hear how you do it.


Apple cake:

  • 200 g plain flour
  • 150 g soft butter
  • 150 g caster sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt

To decorate:

  • 4 apples
  • 3 tablespoons caster sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Place all cake ingredients in the mixing bowl and combine until smooth on setting 30 Sec./Speed 5. If you find that the batter is too thick, add a little bit of milk. It should resemble almost very thick custard. Otherwise the apples will sink in.
  3. If you don't have a Thermomix, place all cake ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir until l combined, suing an electric mixer.
  4. Pour the batter in a round cake tin lined with greaseproof paper.
  5. Peel the apples, quarter and remove pips. Slightly score each of them and place on the cake. Dust the cake with the sugar and bake in the oven for 40 minutes until golden brown. Use a wooden skewer to test whether it is done by poking the cake in the middle and if it comes out clean it is done.
  6. Leave to cool down and dust with icing sugar. Enjoy!

    Surely this is wrong using 250 gm flour I vave more of a pastry texture than a batter – expensive mistake

      Hi Janet, the flour is correct. It will depend on the size of eggs you use. If you use medium eggs, the texture will be quite thick but using large eggs should give you a very thick batter almost spreadable rather than pourable. The cake is one of my grandma’s favourites and I have made it like that for a long time. If you find your batter is too thick, please add a bit of milk so that it reaches a very thick almost thick custard like consistency. That should do the trick.

      Of course for example you could use raspberries or blueberries which would be lovely x

    What size cake tin do you use please?

    • Weehooey A Weehooey A on October 24, 2017 at 7:52 am

      This would be 26cm but you can easily go as low as 20cm. x

    I added a touch of cream as my eggs on the small size, came out perfect light and fluffy, also stirred in a handful of raisins after mixing, used cooking apples from the tree, kids happy with quick pudding and me!

    I made this recipe for a Senior Citizen Lunch Club for 30 people where I cook as a volunteer. Everyone loved it and there were only empty dishes! They all loved it and it was so easy to make, even though I had to make three. Thank you Sophia as I am always looking for things to cook for them and I love your recipes.

    I just made this cake tonight with my TM as recipe states except I used 130g sugar and just a sprinkling on the top, it was wonderful. The texture is so pleasant. THANK YOU!

    I can’t believe this actually worked. I’m the worst baker ever but this was so easy and delicious.
