ok – I’ve got to confess something: I am this annoying person that LOVES their birthday. so at this time of the year, I get pretty excited and always host a birthday party with friends and family. and in my opinion, one day isn’t enough – so I always celebrate the day before and the day after.
yesterday was my birthday – so I had quite a lot going on this week to prepare everything. therefore I didn’t have a lot of time to write – but I really wanted to share my recipe for the ultimate autumn cake. it’s an apple biscuit with a lovely cinnamon buttercream. I made one for my cousin’s wedding and one for my birthday – same cake, different decorations. which one do you like more?
what you need:
3 baking tins ø cm
>> mix together until light and fluffy
>> add in one at a time and mix until combined
2 lemons, zest and juice
1 tsp Dr. Oetker Vanilla Paste
>> add to the batter and mix
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1.5 tsp cinnamon
>> sift everything and add to the wet ingredients. mix until just combined
180ml sour cream
220g apples, in small pieces
>> stir carefully in your batter. then spread the dough evenly in your prepared baking tins. bake for 25 minutes at 220°C.
400g butter, room temperature
600g powdered sugar
1 – 1.5 tsp cinnamon, to taste
>> mix the butter for about 4 minutes until light and fluffy. add the sugar and cinnamon one spoon at a time and mix for another 4-6 minutes.
if needed, cut the top of your cake so it’s nice and even. then add buttercream in between the layers and decorate as you like it > ENJOY ❤
