Apple Loaf Cake



One of our friends had a cake evening, recently, to which everyone was invited to bring a cake. We still have a garden full of apples, so I decided to make an apple cake. I didn't have a recipe to hand so I took a basic cake and threw in some fruit and cinnamon. It seemed to work pretty well, with a good balance of apple to cake.

Apple Loaf Cake

6oz sugar
4oz butter
2 eggs
6oz self-raising flour
2tsp cinnamon
2 large cooking apples
½ cup raisins

  1. Peel and core the apples, and chop into small pieces (about ½-1cm cubes). Submerge in water to avoid browning.
  2. Preheat the oven to 165°C (or a little higher if you don't have a fan oven) and grease a medium-sized loaf tin.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar together with a spoon. Break two eggs into the bowl and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Fold in the flour and cinnamon until no dry patches remain.
  5. Drain the apple pieces, and add, along with the raisins, to the cake mixture. Mix thoroughly.
  6. Pour into the loaf tin, and bake for approximately 50 minutes - until you can insert a knife into the middle of the cake, and pull it out clean.
  7. Cool on a wire rack.
