Sarah’s Spicy Apple Cake

May 9, 2012 | Filed under In-betweens

Every few  months, I attend a business meeting at Sarah’s place and she always has  tea, coffee and yummy food.  Mostly we meet after work so sometimes Sarah has whizzed into the supermarket on the way home.

Last month though we met on a Saturday morning and Sarah had baked this delicious Spicy Apple Cake.  The plate was empty by the end of the meeting. Good thing Sarah’s husband had his piece before he went out with their  son while we held our meeting.

 Ingredients

2 large Apples diced (I use Granny Smith)
1 cup Sugar
½ cup Raisins
Handful of Walnuts chopped
4oz (125g) Butter – melted
1 Egg
1 ½ cups Flour
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Nutmeg
½ teaspoon Allspice
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Baking Soda

 Method

  1. Heat oven to 180°C
  2. Grease a ring tin or a 20cm round cake tin and line the tin with greaseproof or baking paper
  3. Dice apple and sprinkle with sugar
  4. Stir in raisins, chopped walnuts, egg and melted butter
  5. Sift in dry ingredients and mix
  6. Put into the prepared tin and bake in a moderate oven for 1 hour
  7. Let stand for 10 – 15 mins before turning out
  8. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm or cold.
