Apple Cake

I make this cake all the time,it is so nice and moist
so today thought I would share the recipe
I usually use Granny Smith apples
but had lots of these little sweet lovelies I had bought for juicing
so used them instead and they worked fine.

175grms vegetable margarine
200grms barbados sugar (I couldn't get this so use raw sugar instead)
3 eggs
100grms chopped walnuts
75grms sultanas
175grms self raising flour (wholemeal)
1/4tspn ground cloves
350grms cooking apples grated
(I am going to try using the fruit pulp from my juicing next time instead of the apples)

Grease an 18cm diam round cake tin (I used a square this time for a change)
I lined it with baking paper so it comes out easy

Cream together margarine and only 175grms of the sugar
Beat in eggs
fold in the flour,sultanas cloves and only 50grms of the chopped nuts
Spoon into the tin and top with the combined left over sugar and nuts

Bake at 180c for approx 11/2 hours or until golden and firm to the touch

Enjoy mmmm

With a nice cup of peppermint tea in an English Vale tea cup

Hope you're having a lovely week

Good Morning Jeanette Ann, I love moist cakes and we have a similar cake here in England called Dorset Apple Cake. There are a few differences, but isn't that the fun of baking. We add a little of this and a little of that to create different versions.
I shall certainly be trying this recipe as I love the addition of the walnuts. I notice you baked your cake in an oblong tin, is it alright to bake the cake in a round cake tin.
I love your English Vale teacup and saucer, it is very pretty.
Thank you for another idea for using the pulp of fruit.
Best Wishes

Sounds just delicious! My sister makes one, but it's a bit complicated. Yours sounds simple enough to give it a try!
Thanks so much for sharing it.
