 Italian Apple Cake




This delightful Italian apple cake is a moist and flavorful dessert, perfect for enjoying with a cup of coffee or tea. With a hint of lemon and a dusting of powdered sugar, it’s a simple yet elegant treat.


– 3 large apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
– 1 lemon, juiced
– 3 large eggs
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
– 1/2 cup milk
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
– 2 teaspoons baking powder
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– Powdered sugar, for dusting




1. **Preheat the Oven**:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.

2. **Prepare the Apples**:
Place the sliced apples in a bowl and toss with the lemon juice. This prevents browning and adds a nice flavor.

3. **Mix the Wet Ingredients**:
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and granulated sugar together until pale and fluffy. Add the melted butter, milk, and vanilla extract, and mix until combined.

4. **Combine the Dry Ingredients**:
In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.


5. **Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients**:
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring just until combined.

6. **Add the Apples**:
Fold the apple slices into the batter, ensuring they are evenly distributed.

7. **Bake**:
Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

8. **Cool and Serve**:
Let the cake cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, dust with powdered sugar before serving.


– For extra flavor, add a teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the batter.
– Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a decadent treat.


Enjoy this classic Italian apple cake as a delicious dessert or a sweet snack any time of the day!
