Apple Cake Bars

I know , I know... it´s been a long time since I was here. 
I had been busy for a few months , had lots of paperworks needed for 
my retirement as well as taking care of family matters.. 

Today, I want to inspire you with this very easy to prepare Apple Cake Bars that are very delicious! This is a quick cake to bake for settling- down at the table with family and friends for the five o`clock tea or coffee. This can also be served at breakfast..

Hope you enjoy baking this as much as I enjoyed making this myself.

Apple Cake Bars


  • 250 g Flour
  • 150 g Sugar (Stevia powder - about 10 Tablespoons 
  • sugar  substitute equivalent)
  • 100 ml Oil
  • 100 ml Water
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 pack baking powder
  • 1 Pack Vanilla sugar
  •     Juice of 1/2 Lemon
  •     2 apples 
  •     2-3 tbsp of  Apple jam/marmalade


1. Wash the apples. Core and cut apples in thin slices... set aside.

2. Separate the eggs into two containers. In one container, beat the eggyolk,
    sugar, vanilla sugar and lemon juice. Beat until mixture is smooth in consistency.

3. Fold in flour and the sifted powder to the eggyolk mixture adding alternately the 
    water and the oil.

4. In a second container, beat the egg whites until they get stiff  and fold these carefully
    into the eggyolk-flour mixture. Spread the batter in a lined baking dish.

5. Add the apples... inserting each slice into the batter. Heat 2 tablespoons of apple jam 
    either in the microwave for a minute or under low fire until jam is dissolved or liquified.
    Bake under 170°C/388°F for about 40 minutes.

    The cake is done when a toothpick inserted inside the cake comes out clean.
    Sprinkle sugar on top of the apples slices.  Cut into bars and serve with 
    whipped cream (optional).

    TIP: To make sure that the top of the cake doesn´t get too dark... cover the baking
              dish with aluminum foil during the second half of the baking time. 

Enjoy baking and tasting!
