Apple Custard Tea Cake

This teacake gets a big thumbs up! The grated apples and of course the custard make it moist and yummie. It also has a hint of cinnamon flavour to it. It prefect for your afternoon tea or even as a dessert. The cake is equally delicious the day after, so  you can very well preparem this cake in advance.

Apple Custard Tea Cake
125 grams butter, room temperature
2 dl sugar (200ml)
2 eggs
4 1/2 dl flour (450ml)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla sugar
2 grated apples

2 egg yolks
3 dl milk (300ml)
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp corn starch
1 vanilla pod

Divide the vanilla pod and place the seeds in a saucepan. Add the other ingredients and stir. Let the mixture simmer and whisk by hand at the same time, until custard thickens. Don't let the cream boil as it easily burns. Set aside, and let it cool.

Preheat the oven at 175 degrees C. Grease and flour a cake tin.

Combine butter and sugar and then add the eggs one by one, while whisking. Add the rest of the ingredients and combine carefully. The cake mixture is rather thick. Spread half the batter in the cake tin. Spread the custard over the cake mixture. Then add the remaining cake batter, easist is to place dollops of the cake batter on top of the custard and then carefully even it out with a spatula. Bake inte the middle of the oven for about 45 minutes or until a stick comes out clean.
