This is a recipe that was featured in The 4 Blades Magazine – Afternoon Tea Issue back in November last year. When I created this I just knew it would need to appear on the blog at some point.

This Apple Spice Cake is a delicious cake that is so incredibly simple to make. You can absolutely change the fruit used in this recipe. Pears or apricots work really well.

This is so delicious served warm with a dollop of thick cream for a really indulgent afternoon tea.

    My kindy boy loves this as a recess treat. Being the kind of cook that cuts corners wherever possible, I grated the apples 2sec/sp6 before mixing through cinnamon on speed 2, set aside in a separate bowl, continued as per recipe and pressed the apple mixture into the batter as directed. A handy bonus of this method meant the top of the cake was pretty completely covered with apple so I was able to skip the butter coating too 😉
