Best Apple Cinnamon Cake

This our best version of apple cake.
Matt & I have both recently had another go at making it & I'd say it's now pretty jolly good!
...really easy & always yummy!

Melt 150 grams butter
add 1 C brown sugar
1 dsp- tbsp of good cinnamon ( I have an organic Indonesian cinnamon at the moment that is amazing)
1/2 c raisins...or sultanas, sticky raisins, golden sultanas or mixed jumbo raisins
mix in 2 large, peeled & fairly finely diced apples
add 1/2 chopped walnuts
then 2 free range eggs
lastly, gently mix in 2c flour 
(I use 7 grain Zentrofen makes a slightly more crumbly 
cake but is better for you & has more flavour )
& 2 tsps baking powder
turn in to a greased tin lined with baking paper
 on the bottom
Bake at 160 degrees for 55- 60 mins
really nice as it is 
or brilliant served warm with thick Greek 
yoghurt & maybe a sprinkling of cinnamon

  1. Your cake looks delicious. Could you use wholemeal wheat flour and take out the fruit? Miss G. detests sultanas and raisins

  2. Hi Anne, yes you can use wholemeal flour or 1/2 white 1/2 wholemeal & no problem to leave out the raisins. You could substitute dried apricots, cranberries if you like or not at all. This cake is also great made with apple/tamarillo or apple/pear....& ginger.


Ooh you are so kind to leave a comment ♥
