  • This is a wet/dry cake method which is that you put all the wet ingredients in one bowl and all the dry ingredients in another bowl, then mix them together.
  • The easiest way to grate the apples is take an apple whole a grate skin and all until you reach near the pips then turn it around until you only have the middle bit left.
  • Mix together by hand so there is no flour lumps and put into the loaf tin. Bake for 45 to 60 mins.
  • A skewer should come out clean when the cake is cooked through.

  • Additional Information

    You can cook this any baking tin or cake case but the easiest is a large bread loaf tin. The best thing is to line the loaf tin. This can be done as neatly or roughly as you prefer. When in a rush I just cut an approximate size of baking paper and lay it on top. The weight of the mixture will mould the cake to the right shape. I always grate the apples last. Heat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade.

    What 3 Others have said

    • Baked this last night and I was a bit disappointed. I think the recipe needs a little more fluid in it as the cake mixture was rather stiff. I baked it at 160-170 degrees fan for 45 minutes and added on an extra 10 minutes. The bake was a bit too crumbly and heavy although the flavours were all good. Just to add that I am an experienced home-baker but I'll be tweaking this recipe some before I try it again.
