Apple sauce cake

Apple sauce cake


Serves 8-10


  • 1/2 cup (125g) unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup (180g) sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups (300g) plain flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 375g jar apple sauce

For topping:

  • 2 tsp butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 tsp caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Grease a ring tin and line the base with baking paper.

Beat butter and sugar until pale and creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition. Fold through flour, cinnamon and baking powder. Finally, fold through the apple sauce.

Pour into prepared tin and bake for 30-35 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Once cooked, remove cake from tin and place right side up on a cooling rack. Brush the cake with melted butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the top.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
