Frying Pan Apple Cake

I was recently sent some beautiful pans by Morsø to review and am loving using the beautiful wooden handled frying pan and saucepan. These heavy pans really work well to make sure the heat is evenly distributed across everything being cooked up. Well, due to the fact I’ve been enjoying these pans so much I was reluctant to get out any baking pans when knocking up a cake for the husband recently and the answer was of course, obvious. I’d have to make a cake on the stovetop using the frying pan instead!


This beautiful cake is great with a big helping of custard as a Sunday lunch dessert which can be served in the centre of the table.

One warning – watch out that the apple doesn’t caramelise too quickly and keep the heat low to ensure an even bake and no burning!


  • 2 apples (use cooking apples if you want a mushier texture, or regular apples for a bit more of a bite)
  • 64g of dark brown sugar (for use with the apples)
  • 128g Plain Flour
  • 128g Sugar
  • 115g Melted butter
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon Cinnamon


  • Chop apples into segments, place in a bowl and add sugar. Toss to coat and add all to a hot pan with a small bit of butter to get things started.
  • Keep an eye on the apple, making sure it isn’t burning or getting too mushy!
  • In another bowl whisk the eggs and the vanilla extract and gradually add the sugar and cinnamon, mixing well.  Add the melted butter and continue to stir.
  • Next add the flour and baking powder into the mixture, folding gently.
  • When ready, pour the cake mixture evenly over the apples, lower the temperature, cover the pan with some foil and leave for around 15 minutes)
  • Serve immediately and douse in custard. Enjoy!
