Apple Crumble Cake


220 butter, chopped, melted
4 eggs at room temperature
2 3/4 cups self-raising flour
1 1/2 cups caster sugar
1/3  cup custard powder
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Sour cream
800g can apple pie fruit

Crumble topping:
3/4 plain flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
75g butter, chilled, chopped


Preheat oven to 180 C. Grease a deep roasting dish or slab pan.  Cut baking paper to line tin and leave 2cm over hang.

Using an electric mixer beat melted butter, eggs, flour, caster sugar, sour cream, custard powder and vanilla essence for 3 minutes or until pale and fluffy.

Pour half the mixture into prepared dish or pan. Spread apple over mixture. Top with remaining mixture.

Make crumble topping: Combine flour, white sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon in a bowl. Use fingertips to rub butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Sprinkle topping over cake mixture. 

Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Serve warm with cream Or custard and ice cream.

I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.
