    About this recipe: People don't usually think of apple and chocolate, but this unique apple cake recipe is very moist and rich. I have also made it in loaf tins, and given it away for Christmas gifts.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 16 

    • 3 eggs
    • 375g caster sugar
    • 225g butter, softened
    • 125ml water
    • 280g plain flour
    • 2 tablespoons cocoa
    • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 130g chocolate chips
    • 250g grated apple
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

    Method
    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr30min 

    1. Cream together until fluffy the eggs, sugar, butter and water.
    2. In another bowl, sieve together the flour, cocoa, bicarb and spices.
    3. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture and mix well.
    4. Fold in chocolate chips, apple and vanilla extract. Stir until these ingredients are evenly distributed.
    5. Spoon into greased, floured 25cm loose bottom tube cake tin.
    6. Bake at 170 C / Gas 3 for 60 to 70 minutes until cake tests done.

    To make loaf cakes

    You can use two 1 lb loaf tins instead of the 25cm tube tin. Adjust baking time by testing cake after 50 minutes.
