Autumn brings the harvest and with it a plentiful supply of apples. I never refuse the offer of surplus apples but I then spend more time baking.
This recipe has chunks of sweet apple in a moist cake and can be eaten any time, with a cup of coffee or after lunch – a friend and I very much looked forward to it as a ‘reward’ after our cycle ride 😊 It’s also very easy to make.
Notes: I use plant milk to make the recipe vegan but you can use cow’s milk if you prefer.
Dessert apples are sweeter but cooking apples can also be used.
For the top of the cake:
Insert a clean skewer into the middle of the cake and then remove it. If the skewer comes out clean then the cake is ready. If there are any crumbs or cake mix on the skewer, put the cake back into the oven for a further five minutes or so then test again. Depending upon the type of oven you have the cooking time can vary even when they are set to the same temperature so do repeat this test until the skewer comes out clean.
Leave the cake to cool then enjoy😊
