Apples spiced and sliced in this delicious heart warming cake.......

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 40 mins
  • Yields: 8 Generous


500 Grams Apples

1/2 tsp Ground ginger

1 tsp Ground cinnamon

1 tsp Mixed spice

1/2 tsp Freshly ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp Ground cloves

8 Cardamon pods

250 Grams Butter

200 Grams Golden caster sugar

200 Grams Self raising flour

4 Eggs free and organic

1 Heaped tbsp Soft brown sugar


Lightly grease and line a square loose bottom 23cm cake tin.  Pre heat your oven to 180c.

Peel and core the apples and cut into small chunks or slices and coat them, in a bowl, with all the spices.

In a food mixer, using a whisk attachment, cream the butter, sugar, beaten eggs and flour and whisk to a light smooth consistency.  Spoon into your prepared tin and level the top.  With your hands press in chunks/slices of spiced apple, some deep, some halfway and some on top.  Sprinkle with brown sugar and any remaining spice and bake in the centre of the oven 40-45mins until golden and brown.  Check the cake is cooked by inserting a sharp metal skewer into the cake, it should come out clean.

Best eaten slightly cooled with a vanilla ice cream or a beautiful, silky, vanilla custard.......... Delicious !!!!

Seasonal pears work well too.
