Apple Tea Cake

Chunky Apple Tea Cake

Apple Tea Cake is easy to whip up in the Thermomix then bake in the oven. My expert taste testers (ie. my family) tell me that this is the best cake I’ve created. Since my Cinnamon Crumble Cake recipe went viral, that’s really saying something!

This is a moist cake, with little chunks of apple in every bite and just the right amount of cinnamon. If you are dairy free, coconut oil will work well in place of the butter.

  • 50 g rolled oats or steel cut oats

  • 2 large green apples cored, quartered (275g useable weight)
  • 100 g unbleached white spelt flour
  • 80 g wholemeal spelt flour
  • 2 Tbsp ground cinnamon yes, that 2 tablespoons, trust me
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 0.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • large pinch salt
  • 350 g coconut cream
  • 60 g butter or vegan spread
  • 3 eggs


  • 20 g butter or vegan spread

  • Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line the base and grease the sides of a round spring form tin.
  • Place oats and sugar in mixer bowl. Mill 20 seconds/speed 9/MC on. Remove from bowl and set aside.
  • Place apples in mixer bowl. Chop 6 seconds/speed 4/MC on. Remove from bowl and set aside (a different bowl to the oat/sugar mixture).
