Apple Walnut Cake

This is a very easy cake to do. It’s the mix all up in one bowl and bake type of cake and takes just over an hour to make and bake. Well at home it’s eaten up just as fast. I like to serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

- 200gm flour type 00
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 200gm cooking apples peeled, cored and sliced thinly
- 50gm castor sugar
- 2 tablespoons walnuts chopped
- 2 tablespoons mixed fruit
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
- 4 tablespoons oil
For the Icing:
- 40gm butter
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 20ml milk

Icing Preparation:
Combine the icing ingredients and cook for 1 minute till sugar is melted.

Sieve the flour and baking powder together. Add the apples, sugar, cinnamon, walnuts and mixed fruit and mix well. Beat in the eggs and blend in the butter. Stir well to combine. Spoon the mixture into a greased cake tin. Bake in a preheated oven (180°C fan forced) for approximately 45 minutes or until skewer comes out clean. Turn out and cool on a wire rack. Poke holes in the cake and pour icing mkixture over the cake. Store in an airtight container.
