About this recipe:I love using local British apples in this easy peasy loaf cake. I chop the apple into rather small bits, but you can leave it chunky, too. If you use tart apples, you may want to increase the sugar by 25 to 50g.
Preheat oven to 150 C / Gas 2. Grease a 900g loaf tin and line with baking parchment.
Mix flour, bicarb, salt and apples in a large bowl. Whisk together melted butter or oil, sugar, eggs and cinnamon together in a small bowl; add to flour mixture and mix until just moistened. Add mixture to prepared loaf tin.
Bake in preheated oven until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean, about 90 minutes. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
Simple and quick to make, ideal for using up apples that may be a little past their best. it only needed around 60 minutes baking in my fan oven until ready. Very tasty and moist. Lovely with the addition of cinnamon. - 21 May 2016
Very easy cake to make and turned out lovely!
Had to change a couple of things though. Used self raising flour, so left out bicarbonate of soda. No cinnamon but threw in some chocolate chips. - 13 Sep 2015
