Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour two 23cm round cake tins.
Using an electric mixer, beat flour, sugar, mayonnaise, milk, eggs, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and cloves together for 2 minutes. The batter will be thick. Stir in apples, raisins and walnuts.
Divide batter between prepared tins. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool in tins on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove and cool on wire racks.
In a large bowl, beat the cream with icing sugar until stiff peaks form. Use this to fill and ice the cake.
