Apple cinnamon tea cake (from scratch) 5 0 5 4
  • Prep: 30 mins

    1 hr 30 mins

    2 hrs

  • Yields: 8 pieces


1 Granny Smith Apple (peeled cored and sliced and soak in lemon juice)

60g butter

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup caster sugar

1 cup SR flour

Cinnamon sugar for sprinkling (Optional)


1Peel core and slice Apple and soak in lemon juice and set aside.

2Combine butter and sugar in mixer.

3Add egg, vanilla essence, and cinnamon. Mix until combined.

4Add flour and milk alternately while mixing until all combined.

5Pour mixture into buttered and floured slow cooker insert.

6Push Apple slices into top anyway you like (unless very thin, they will sink to the middle anyway)

7I added a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar over the top.

8Pop tea towel under lid.

9Tea Towel Trick

10Cook on high for 1 1/2 - 2 hours until skewer comes out of the centre clean.


1Turn slow cooker every half hour to avoid burning (1.5L slow cookers have a hot spot)

2To make non stick coating for slow cooker insert (cake comes out easier and isn't wrinkly like with baking paper) Rub the slow cooker insert with margarine/spread on some paper towel, then coat with some flour. Tip out excess flour and set slow cooker aside.
