    1 lb plain flour
    13 oz sugar
    8 oz soft butter
    6 eggs
    2 pack vanilla sugar (I use Dr Oetker)
    2 pinch of salt
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    3-4 tablespoons of milk
    4-6 apples sliced

    Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare and grease cake tin. I normally use a 12 deep dutch oven round cake tin.

    Mix together all the ingredients apart from the apples. Pour the mixture into the cake tin and smooth the top until flat. Push the apple pieces gently, at random, into the cake so they sink slightly into the mixture.

    Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Test whether the cake is cooked through by piercing the centre with a toothpick. If it comes out clean then the cake is done.

    Let the cake cool.

    Looks great!
    How much vanilla sugar is "2 pack"? I make mine, so I've never purchased it.

    Thanks! So about 2/3 ou. 1 ou = 6 tsp. 4 tsp sounds right?
    I'll probably just add regular old vanilla to the batter, and increase the granulated sugar a bit.
