About this recipe: This sponge cake is quick and easy to prepare. It's rich, buttery, lightly spiced and very fruity. Enjoy thickly sliced for afternoon tea or elevenses. It also does well in packed lunches.
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
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
