One of my all-time favourites! Great served with tea or for dessert with whipped cream. Also great for picnics and lunch boxes.


Serves: 4-6

  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or sour milk - for when you do not have buttermilk, add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to milk to sour it)
  • 2½ cups flour
  • 2 cups apples (raw, chopped fine or grated)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
