Apple Crumble Cake with Vanilla Pudding

Now you already know I love apple crumble. For this week’s fall recipe I prepared even more delicious, creamy version of this well-known cake. And a tip: combine it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream 😉 The preparation time is about an hour, and you will need additional hour for baking.


Ingredients (for 10 pieces or 26 cm baking tray)


100 g butter

90 g sugar

2 eggs

Teaspoon vanilla essence

120 g flour

8 g baking powder


Apple filling

6 apples

2 tablespoons sugar

Teaspoon cinnamon


Vanilla pudding

300 ml milk

2 tablespoons sugar

20 g vanilla pudding powder (or 1 pack)



85 g butter

70 g sugar

120 g flour

Teaspoon cinnamon



Firstly, prepare the apple filling. Peel the apples, clean them, and cut into thin slices. Cover with sugar and cinnamon and gently mix. Set aside.

Prepare the crumble. Put all ingredients in the bowl and knead to get fine crumbles.

The crumble

Cover the round baking tray with butter and sprinkle with flour.

Prepare the sponge. Whip the butter with sugar. Add eggs, one by one. Finally, add the remaining ingredients and stir until combined. The sponge mixture must be thick. Cover the bottom of the baking tray.


Put half of the apple filling on it.

Apple slices with sugar and cinnamon

Preheat the oven on 180 degrees Celsius.

Prepare the vanilla pudding. Boil milk with sugar and add vanilla pudding powder. Cook until becomes thick and stir all the time. When cooked, pour on the cake.

You can serve your cake warm or cold. In every case, it’s delightful with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
