    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.

    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
