Hello ,on a lovely autumnal day like today what better pastime than making an apple cake to celebrate the bumper harvest from the orchard. So that’s what I decided to do when I returned home from work.
for the cake
125g vegetable oil
225g brown soft sugar
2 beaten eggs
225g plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
300g peeled, cored and chopped cooking apples
for the topping
2 tablespoons clear honey,2 tablespoons Demerara sugar
Preheat oven to gas 3/160c
Whisk the oil and eggs together
Mix the sugar, flour,baking powder, and spices together
Stir in the chopped apple
Mix in the oil and eggs
Pour into a lined Swiss roll tin or small roasting tin
Bake for approx. 1 hour or until a skewer pushed into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
Mix the honey and sugar together and pour over the hot cake.
Serve warm with cream or ice-cream
