Recipe: Mixed Berries Apple Spelt Cake

So mum had 2 apples and a packet of frozen berries that she needed to finish. But there were no eggs, all purpose flour or sugar left! Hence it was off to adapting a few recipes and coming up with one of my own! :D


  • 1 cup fresh or frozen berries (If frozen, defrost before using.)
  • 2 small apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 Tbl + 1 tsp sugar
  • 113g unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar (I used 1/2 cup pure maple syrup)
  • 2 eggs (I used an egg replacement- 2 tbsp water mixed with 1 tbsp of oil + 2 tspn of baking powder per egg)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Preheat the oven to 170 degrees.
  • Combine the berries, the wine and 1 tablespoon plus 1 tsp sugar in a small bowl. Mix to coat. Set aside.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside. In a larger mixing bowl, beat the butter and 3/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, making sure that each one is completely combined before adding the next. Mix in the vanilla. Slowly add the flour mixture and beat at a low speed until just combined.
  • Grease and flour a 9-inch springform pan and cover the bottom with parchment paper. Spread the batter evenly over the bottom of the pan. Spoon the berries over the batter. Place the apple slices in a decorative pattern around the cake. Sprinkle with some brown sugar.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes, and then run a thin knife around the edge. Carefully remove the ring around the pan and serve!
