This flavourful and very easy to prepare Greek apple cake recipe, makes the perfect coffee cake!


  • 1 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 apples, peeled, cored and sliced (I use Gala- but Granny Smith apples are also a great choice)


In a large bowl  beat the eggs with a whisk and mix in the sugar. Then add the vanilla, cinnamon and butter. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and stir well. Spoon batter into a greased 9 1/2 inch cake pan. Arrange sliced apples over the batter. Preheat oven to 425 degree F. and bake for approximately 1 hour.
