Gâteau Invisible / Invisible Apple Cake

Just when you think apple cakes cannot become any more decadent, behold the magic of the French Invisible Apple Cake, also known as Gâteau Invisible. The secret?
Thinly sliced apples layer upon layer, blending seamlessly into each other and giving you a taste of pure, unadulterated apple goodness with every single forkful.

The texture is smooth, while the flavor is rich and creamy.

The Invisible Apple Cake originates from France with a high popularity in Japan! The Japanese also incorporate miso paste into the batter for the extra flavor.


3 eggs, lightly beaten

2/3 cup milk, slightly warmed

3 tbs butter, melted

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

4 apples, honey crisp

Sliced almonds ( optional)


Preheat your oven to 350 ℉. Line a 9×5″ loaf pan with parchment paper.In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, butter + vanilla. Add in the flour, powdered sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt and mix until smooth.

Peel, core and slice the apples with a mandoline. Add them into the bowl and mix to coat all in the batter.

Transfer the apples only to the pan, a little at a time, gently flattening out any pieces that are sticking up.

Pour the remaining batter to the top of the loaf pan evenly.

Transfer to the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes. Or until the top is golden brown.Allow to set in pan for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool for another 15 minutes.

Optional: Top with some sliced almonds and bake.

Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar and slice to enjoy.

NOTES: For best results, allow the cake to cool completely, then place it in the fridge for a few hours before serving. Serve with a dollop of fresh cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
