Whainga ako: use google to research a recipe for apple sponge.

Recipe for apple sponge:


  • unsalted butter , for greasing
  • 6 eating apples
  • 100 g sugar
  • 2 large free-range eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 60 g self-raising flour
  • ½ teaspoon mixed spice
  • icing sugar , for dusting


Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4 and grease a 1.5-litre baking dish with butter.

Peel, core and chop the apples, then place in a pan with 50g of the sugar and 2 tablespoons of water.

Cover and cook, stirring now and then, for 8 minutes, or until the apple breaks down. Spoon into your dish, leaving the excess liquid in the pan.

Beat the eggs with the remaining 50g of sugar until fluffy, then stir in the vanilla extract, sift in the flour and spice and fold together.

Pour the batter over the apples and bake for 30 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean from the sponge.

Dust with icing sugar before serving. Delicious served hot with ice cream or custard.

  1. Kia ora Kararaina. I'm Katelin from Mamaku Hub Grey Main School. Wow that sounds and looks yummy I would love to make apple sponge Maybe next time fix the tile to sponge because half way down it says sponge. Did you make this for your class or for your family? This reminds me when I bake with my mum and sister mahi whakamataku (awesome work) from Katelin.
