About this recipe: A yummy apple cake that I decided to make for the first time tonight. I was very happy with how it turned out.
The cake mixture is a basic cake recipe that my mam thought me when I was very young. It is easy and can be used for fairy cakes. You can use this recipe for a pineapple upside-down cake, I just wanted to make it with apples for a change.
Please note, this cake takes at least 40 minutes to cook ... Perhaps more as mine took 43 minutes...I have a brand new oven that has been tested for temperature accuracy. It looks the part...will see how it tastes! - 01 Oct 2013
Just made this cake,although it took considerably longer than the stated time (mine took 45 mins) it was completely worth it, sweet apple topping really light and delicious sponge, will make it often. Well done great recipe. - 27 Feb 2015
Hi, I am just cooking this cake now so not sure how it's going to turn out. Please note there is a mistake in the Method though - no mention of adding baking powder (trying to make this with 4 year old in tow so a bit distracted...). Can you amend? (Baking powder mentioned in ingredients). Let's see whether it rises! - 20 Dec 2013
