20 g of vanilla sugar
350 g flour
250 g of sugar

0,5 tsp of cinnamon
a pinch of salt
powdered sugar for sprinkling
Put in a bowl the butter, a mound of sugar, vanilla sugar and pour the egg.
Whisk until smooth, add salt.
Mix the sifted flour and baking powder.
By adding a little flour to the oil blend, knead the dough (should get a mass of creamy consistency).
Wash apples , remove the core, cut into slices, sprinkle with cinnamon and add to the dough. Mix thoroughly.
Put baking paper on a baking dish.
Pour the dough with the apples.
Warm up the oven to 200 C degrees and bake for 40-45 minutes until golden brown.
Serve the cake sprinkled with powdered sugar.
Convenient for this purpose is to use a fine sieve.
If you like to experiment, try to cook the cake with other fruit fillings: plums, peaches, apricots … Especially tasty is if some walnuts are added.
