How to make Apple Crumble Butter Cake

For butter lovers. This is a rich butter cake and if you love apple crumble, the better!

  1. First, grease a (approximately 20cm) square pan and preheat the oven to 175°C.
  2. Then beat the butter, margarine, sugar and salt until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in the eggs, one at a time, and beat thoroughly after each addition.
  4. Then, fold in sifted flour, baking powder and cinnamon powder.
  5. Stir in the apples and raisins.
  6. Spread batter into the prepared pan.
  7. For the crumble, it's really easy (but I find it hard to describe in words). Combine the flour, salt, cinnamon powder and sugar. Then, rub in butter with the tips of fingers until resembles bread crumbs.
  8. Sprinkle crumble over the batter.
  9. Then, finally, bake in oven for about 50 minutes or until cooked.

The apples might make the cake slightly moist. So, it might look uncooked. Baking it for a maximum 60minutes should be sufficient. It also depends on the depth of the pan.

You can always replace apple slices with blueberry or raspberries.
