Hey guess what?

I have things in my life other than managing a brain tumour! Yes I do!

I love cooking with apples. Well all fruit really, but especially apples.

My mum and her best friend (who have both sadly passed away in the past five years) loved and shared the most delicious apple cake recipe.
AND IT'S EASY!!!! Because these too amazing women are not in my life anymore, their recipe, written with love and passed to me is especially precious.

Yesterday I made the cake for Mark to take to his work today. His work mates are benefiting from my 'recovery boredom' quite a bit lately. I smothered it with maple syrup butter icing. OMG YUM!!!

Here tis if you want to try it:

Easy Spiced Apple Cake
Melt 125 grams butter
Grate 2 medium size apple, mix in 1 cup brown sugar and an egg. Mix!!!

Dry ingredients:
1 & half cups flour
1 tspn baking soda
1 tspn cinnamon
1 tspn cloves
1 tspn mixed spice
1/2 tspn salt.

Combine sifted dry ingredients with the wet apple mixture. Put into a lined, greased 20cm round cake tin.
If not icing then add a topping before baking:
25g melted butter
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup sugar
tspn mixed spice

Bake 30 minutes at 180

ps Yesterday I also made rhubarb muffins which I had never made before. Have you? They were amazing and didn't even have butter in them. Wahooo!!!

  1. I will have to try this - and I love rhubarb too, it always reminds me of my granny :)

  2. you had me at easy....

    and then again at MAPLE SYRUP BUTTER ICING!!!! oh my that sounds divine!

  3. That sounds as if it could also be a pud with lashings of creamy custard! I thing I'll try it on the troops when I get to NZ.

  4. Always like things with fruit and not much oil. The combination of cinnamon cloves and mixed spice is always a winner. You're giving me ideas about what to cook for a guest on Tuesday, she's said she'd like to come over here and have some cake!

  5. Yum! Although i get the feeling this won't help my post baby figure... lol!!!

  6. I can almost smell it ;) Nothing like the smell of homemade cake for a homy atmosphere!


Please comment! I love your feedback :-)
