    This cake is delicious , I didnt have enough walnuts so added some sultanas, there was a lot of mixture and it filled two loaf tins, I would suggest that you halve the ingredients if you want to make just one loaf. the peeling and chopping of the apples was a bit time consuming, and the mixture was very heavy to stir by hand. BUT worth it as its wonderful, moist and very tasty.  -  04 Sep 2011


    Easy to prepare. Cake took 1hr 30 min to bake, but well worth the wait. Most and full flavour. I added ginger for extra taste. Was delicious :-)  -  08 Sep 2013


    I have made this twice now and my family love it! The first time I got a 2kg and a 1kg loaf out of the mixture, this time I used my 2kg loaf tin and used the rest of the mixture to make individual muffins which were delicious. This recipe is so easy and results in a moist and very tasty cake :-)  -  10 Sep 2013
