Apple Cinnamon Cake
This is an easy recipe, Apple Cinnamon cake with walnuts crumble topping. This cake is not only moist and soft, but the sweet smell of cinnamon lingered on in the house during the process of baking. I remember I baked 5 of this Apple Cinnamon Cake for the School Fun Fair and one of my dear blogger friends also loved this cake very much.
- 30g Plain flour
- 20g Sugar
- 1/4 tsp Cinnamon powder
- 80g Walnuts ~ chop to pieces
- 10g Soft butter
- Mix all topping ingredients together with your fingertips and put aside for later use.
- 220g Plain flour
- 1 tsp Baking powder

- 150g Butter
- 150g Sugar
- 2 Large Eggs
- 1 tsp Vanilla flavor
- 40g Whipping cream
- 2 Green apples ~ peeled and diced (not too small)
- Sift all the dry ingredients together.
- In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy then add in whipping cream, continue to beat till light.
- Then add in vanilla flavor and eggs one at a time.
- Scrape bowl and add the flour ingredients, mix well.

- Bake in preheated oven 180C and bake at about 50 mins.
Hi Ann, I am interested to bake this care. So appreciate if you could help me with these questions. Thanks and appreciate it!
should the butter for the crumble topping be very cold or room temperature?
should the crumble topping be like breadcrumbs after they have been mixed?
do I cream the butter and sugar with an electric handheld mixer? If yes, how long?
how long must I beat the mixture with an electric handheld mixer after the addition of whipped cream?
do I continue to beat the mixture with an electric handheld mixer after adding the vanilla extract?
do I continue to beat the mixture with an electric handheld mixer after each addition of egg? If yes, how long must I beat after each addition of egg?
am I supposed to mix flour into the batter with a spatula or using the electric handheld mixer? If using an electric handheld mixer, is it on low speed?
I don't have an 8" round baking tin can I use a 8" square instead? Any change in baking time?
Thanks and appreciate your patience but really would like to hear from you!
Hi Ai Li,hehee… you got a long list of questions ^_^I already stated soft butter for the crumble.Not to worry about the crumble, just mix them with your finger tip and it's not very fine like breadcrumb because of the chopped walnuts.Sorry I never use a electric handheld mixer before. I always used kenwood mixer or kitchen aid to beat the butter and sugar and I never check my beating time. As long the mixture looks pale white and light, I'll add in the next ingredient. Only take a minute to combine the whipping cream together. Yes, add in the vanilla extract and continue to add in the egg one at a time at low speed. When you see the egg is mixed well in the batter, then continue to add in the next one.Just slowly pour the flour into the batter and continue to mix at low speed until combined.If you're using a 8' square tin, the cake will be lower. For timing you can test it with a skewer after 40 minutes of baking.Hope I have answered all your questions 🙂
Thank you so much for taking time to answer my questions. Really appreciate it!
Clare ~ hahaa…so next time when I bake this cake I'll invite you to my kitchen ;))Smita ~Thanks for your comment and visiting.Alison ~Thanks!Pierre ~ Thanks for your compliments. But I think I need to learn more from you.Chayacomfycook ~ Thanks~! Hope you'll try this cake one day.
can this be done with regular red apples?
yes but using green apples are more crunchy.
yum yum yum!!!!!!!
No matter what, I still cannot accept the smell of Cinnamon. What a waste!
Mmmm…love this cake. The crumbs topping looks crunchy, smells & tastes awesome. Beautiful pictures!
I love this cake. I tried one of your apple cake, is it similar. Love the toppings.
Good crumble topping gives a cake a classic look and yours is one of them!
Beautiful cake…looks so moist and inviting 🙂 Love crumble toppings…
your cake looks very fluffy and I love the generous amount of walnuts – my hamster will like it too! hehe
Cinnamon in everything, I love it!
I love crumb topping! Next time I will have to try adding some nuts into it. Apples will be coming into season very soon and this recipe will be a perfect one to try. I can almost smell the wonderful scent coming from the kitchen.
Oooh, this one sounds and looks really tempting!!! Cinnamon & butter is too good a combo to resist! If I ever get my hands on cooking apples, would love to try this out..
The aroma of cinnamon is getting into my nose and right now I am taking deep breaths in. Love the crumbe topping and the addition of apple.
Hi Bren, I think I never see bake other cakes beside fondant. Hope you like this cake after trying it.
Really a good recipe to try out. I especially love the crumble toppings. By the way, will the apples turn brownish inside after baking? Thanks.

Sounds delish Ann. And yeah I lurve the smell of apple and cinnamon wafting through my kitchen =) I think sometimes I enjoy the smell of baking more than the actual eating!
Bite please! Granny Walden made the best fresh apple cake ever. I'm takin' this recipe and keepin' on hold 'till the apples are ripe. God bless ya and have a fantastic Friday!
This cinnamon-y cake sounds divine! I even love it since it has apple *my favorite fruit* inside 😀
Thank you Friends for leaving your lovely comments. Nezzy ~ Thank you! I'm eager to see your post soon..
I can just imagine how amazing this would smell baking in my oven. And of course it would taste even better still warm from the pan. Apple is such a wonderful, affordable fruit baked or raw.
Hello ALL ~Thank you for all your lovely comments.Wiffy ~ hahaa…when bake this cake, you must add extra walnuts.Anonymous ~ you can add milk or yogurt to substitute whipping cream. Without the cream your cake will not be soft and moist.Indie.Tea ~ Thank you for your comment and visiting.
LOvely cake…awesome click….
It looks great…I can only imagine how wonderful the cinnamon and apple must have smelt 🙂
I love cinnamon ! If i can have my way, I'll add to all my baking ingredients. Too bad my kids have not learnt to like it. I now add just a tiny bit to the banana cake, they said it tasted 'funny'! Hehe …
Yes, I did. Remember you told me to keep in the fridge so that it will ge easier to slice neatly.
