Baking Love: Apple Speculaas Cake

Spring is supposed to start, but it still feels very wintery over here. So that is why I decided to share some wintery recipes with you this week for those last cold days. First there is a Dutch twist on an apple cake with speculaas. A spice mixture that we mostly use in winter time. If you can't find that, you can use a gingerbread mixture instead. We made this cake last week and it was a great success. The recipe for this easy and tasty cake come from Laura's Bakery.

Apple Speculaas Cake:
- 200 gr butter
- 200 gr sugar
- 8 gr vanilla sugar
- 4 eggs
- 200 gr self rising flour
- pinch of salt
- 2 large apples
- 4 tsp speculaas spices

Pre heat the oven to 175 degrees. Beat the butter, together with both sugars until they are creamy. Add the eggs 1 by 1 and beat until they are incorporated in the batter. Sift the flour, salt and speculaas spices into the bowl with the wet ingredients and mix until you have an airy batter. Peel and cube the apples, coat them with a bit of flour and scoop them into the batter. Stir well. Line a cake tin with baking paper. Pour the batter into the cake tin. Bake in the oven for about 1 hour. The cake is done when a toothpick comes out clean.
