Tasty apple cinnamon birthday cake


Hello ladies!

I hope you are well ๐Ÿ™‚

As you know we’ve been pretty busy here! Between work and the peque, we hardly have time to sit and relax, cook and go to the gym… maybe it is also because we have been spending some time having aperos in our little buvette… summer is officially upon us ๐Ÿ™‚


Today I wanted to share the recipe of the cake I baked for my last birthday.
It was super simple yet delicious! You can ask Beth, the Man, the buvette waiters as well as my colleagues who, I believe, loved it too ๐Ÿ™‚

Ingredients for a big birthday cake:

2 eggs
180 ml oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
200 gr sugar
250 gr flour
2 tsp baking soda
4 apples
75 gr nuts


Mix the eggs, flour, cinnamon, oil and sugar together until you get a smooth dough.

Add the cut apples and the crushed nuts (no pun intended!).

Mix everything and put the mix in a buttered and floured mold.

Bake in the oven at 180ยฐ for an hour.

Et voila! All you have to do is blow out the candles and enjoy a delicious birthday cake!

Hope you’ll enjoy it!

    Yummy! I wish I had that cake for my birthday ๐Ÿ™‚ I LOVE cinnamon and apple combo- stunning. I love that you gave some cake to some of the waiters at the buvette ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll be sure to make this cake to bring as a desert for a summer BBQ.

    Hi Hanin, I talked to Beth this morning and she assured me that your cake was a resounding success-moist and delicious. Wish I’d been there. I bet you were a very popular lady at the buvette which for those who don’t know, is an outdoor cafe in the park you go to. But what’s the ‘peque’? Enquiring minds want to know!

      Hola Jan and Emi!
      Thank you for your lovely comments ๐Ÿ™‚
      “La peque” is the abbreviation of “La pequeรฑa”, which means “the little one” in Spanish ๐Ÿ˜‰

    This was such a delicious treat! I really appreciated that you swapped out the butter for oil so that I could have some ๐Ÿ™‚ Question for you. How should the apples be chopped – what size pieces work best? You mentioned “crushed nuts”, what exactly do you mean by that? Is chopping them ok?
