Simple Apple Sponge Cake

Interestingly enough, all of my best friends are Tauruses. Three of my best friends plus my boyfriend, to be more precise. That’s why I’ve spent all my free time at birthday parties recently (makes me feel very popular, hehe). One of my friends is mastering Ayurvedic cooking by the way, which is much more diverse than I used to think. I should ask her to write a guest post about that delicious zucchini and pea soup she made for her birthday! It was so healthy and colourful – I loved how the soup sparkled with yellows and greens when I added a spoonful of sour cream into it!

So, as you might have guessed, I’ve been so busy going out that I haven’t really cooked anything worth displaying here. Instead, Mum cooked her great and simple sponge cake with apples and cinnamon. One of our family all-time favourites, it’s easy and cheap to make. A slice of apple sponge cake with a glass of milk (or baked milk [1], which I’m a huge fan of) – that’s a real comfort food, don’t you think so?


5 eggs, yolks and whites separated
1 cup wheat flour
1 cup sugar
4 tbsp cold water
2 apples
1 tsp ground cinnamon + 2 tbsp sugar

Makes a 30×24 cake


Blend egg yolks, sugar, and water until smooth. Add flour and stir until smooth again. Add more water if necessary – the mixture should have the consistency of a thick sour cream.

Whisk egg whites until stiff.
Gradually add whipped egg whites to the batter, stirring gently.

Peel the apples, remove cores and cut the apples into thin slices (about ½ cm thick).

Pour the batter into your baking form. Top with slices of apples sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. Bake over a low heat for 20 to 30 minutes.
