Apple Cake

Yesterday my son made me company. He got some stomach bug and was really bad on Sunday (while I was working on the fair and felt really bad about not being able to be with him), and yesterday he didn't go to school and stood home to recover 100%.

He had to drink a lot of tea during the day, and he was not happy about it...so.. I decided to made a tea party for 2 of us.
We baked a simple apple cake and made a pot of tea ,it was pouring rain outside and we had a cosy tea party watching the rain.

Classic Apple Cake
(recipe I discovered on a rice milk pack while I was having breakfast)

200g spelt flour
50g ground almonds
3ts baking powder
200ml rice milk
6tbs honey
1 egg
5tbs olive oil
5 apples
2ts cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 180C.
Put the four, almond and baking powder in a bowl.
Mix the egg along with milk and whisk until smooth. Stir in the honey and oil.
Slowly add dry ingredients to the egg mixture.

Grease and line 22cm cake tin with baking paper. Peel the apples and slice thinly placing them directly into the tin. Pour the cake mixture over apples and bake for 30 min.
Leave to cool.


  1. what a lovely teapot you got there! ;)

  2. I love those cosy afternoons... I'm sure the cake and tea made you feel better :)

  3. Ah, ese plato me recuerda a unos que tenían mis padres en casa hace un montón de años. ¿Puedes mandarme un trozo de bizcocho...? ;o)

  4. you are a sweet mother tea and cake...so nice:)

  5. That´s a comfort house. If I were your son I´d be sick more often. I loved to stay at home when I had bad throat. We had a maid who used to bring us to bed a toasted baguette with butter and apricot jam that I won´t ever forget...oh I miss my mom´s when I´m sick now....
    I do the same with my children now, it doesn´t matter if they are grown ups now.
