  1. Blend the butter and the sugar until foamy (the sugar must dissolve completely). Then stir in the egg and afterwards the flour.
  2. Put the mass in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  3. After the mass is cool and not that soft anymore, cover the base and the sides of a buttered cake dish with it.

  1. Clean the apples with the Ha-Ra Viva Mini Cloth to remove preservative waxes. Roughly chop the apples and cook them with the sugar and the cinnamon at medium heat until the apples start to get softer, but don’t fall apart. Add the rum.
  2. Set cake topping aside and let it cool down.
  3. Pour the mass on the cake base.

Note: We like the apple cake when it is still warm together with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream! 🙂
