The lazy cake

Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature; it is advisable to take out the margarine and eggs from the fridge ahead of time. However, don't worry if you forgot, it won't ruin the recipe. Chopping the butter into smaller pieces helps it warm up faster and makes mixing it easier. Another technique is to fill a bowl with boiling water, allow it to heat up, then empty it. Place the bowl over the butter block, just as if you were covering it. This will also soften the butter effectively.


  • 8.8 oz of margarine or butter,
  • 4.2 oz of sugar,
  • 5 eggs,
  • 8.8 oz of cake flour,
  • a teaspoon of baking powder,
  • 4 apples or other favorite fruits.

For decoration:

  • powdered sugar or icing.

  1. Cream the margarine and sugar together until they form a fluffy, pale mixture.
  2. Add eggs one by one, continually stirring the mixture.
  3. Stir in flour, and baking powder and combine everything to form a consistent dough.
  4. Transfer the batter into a cake tin, roughly 9.4 inches in diameter, lined with baking paper.
  5. Top the batter with chopped apples or other preferred fruits. If you opt for frozen fruits, no need to defrost them beforehand.
  6. Insert the cake tin into an oven preheated to 356 degrees Fahrenheit and set to top-and-bottom heat mode. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Allow the cake to cool before decorating with powdered sugar or icing. A caramel or chocolate glaze can also be an excellent choice. Enjoy your dessert!
