Chewy buttercake with apple

Typical Dutch, boterkoek, but a little bit more different! A tasty variation on the regular butter cake. Actually a mix of two typical Dutch delicacies: apple pie x butter cake. Again, a super simple recipe, but so delicious! My test panel was so enthusiastic about this delicious cake, that I have to share it with you.

♡ 270 grams of flour
♡ 200 grams of sugar
♡ 240 grams unsalted butter at room temperature (+ a little for greasing)
♡ One large apple
♡ 8 grams vanilla sugar
♡ 2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar
♡ Half a teaspoon vanilla aroma
♡ 1 beaten egg
♡ Pinch of salt

♡ Baking paper or butter to grease the mold
♡ Bowl
♡ Baking mold
♡ Mixer with dough hooks
♡ Teaspoon
♡ Scales
♡ Cutting knife


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Peel the apple, and cut it as shown in the picture into narrow segments. Put the segments in a bowl and sprinkle with two tablespoons of cinnamon sugar.
  3. Put the baking paper in the baking pan, or if you are doing it without baking paper, grease the pan with butter.
  4. Mix the butter, sugar and vanilla sugar into a creamy mixture in a batter’s bowl.
  5. Add the the egg and the pinch of salt. Mix this into a whole. Now mix the flour into the batter.
  6. Mix the flour into the batter.
  7. As a final step, add half a teaspoon of vanilla aroma through the batter. Mix this until it is completely incorporated.
  8. Doe het beslag in de bakvorm.
  9. Place the apple slices on top of the cake (see picture). They may overlap each other a little bit.
  10. Bake it for about 35 to 40 minutes. When the top of the cake looks crunchy and the apple is a little bit colored at the top, you can remove it from the oven!
