    1. Preheat oven at 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the eggs and whisk. Slowly fold the flour into the mixture, along with the ground cinnamon and baking powder. Pour the mixture into a greased or baking parchment lined 900g (2 lb) loaf tin.
    3. Finally, cube your apple into approximately 1cm sized cubes, leaving the peel on. Lay the cubed apple on top of the cake mixture, before finishing the dish with a sprinkling of demerara sugar, how much you use is completely up to you!
    4. Put into the preheated oven for approximately 35 to 45 minutes, over until a skewer comes out clean. Happy baking!

    A great way to use up apples left in the bottom of the fruit bowl. I served mine with custard and everyone loved it. Will definitely use this recipe again.  -  17 Aug 2014


    Great recipe thank you! It's quickly become one of our favourites, and as an added benefit, it isn't too unhealthy!  -  05 Aug 2014
