READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Debbwl

A happy team of apples and nuts in a snack cake that needs no shortening. Because DH likes thing super sweet this cake is overly sweet. Please see Annacia’s review as you may wish to cut the sugar in order to make it more to your taste.

What a scrummy little cake! I really enjoyed its warm cinnamon aroma, which paired very nicely with the walnuts and apples (I used 2 small apples and my cake was chock full of those tasty little chunks). The cake came out moist and spongy with a lovely crust on top. Everybody enjoyed this treat and nobody even thought that it might be on the healthier side. :)
I have to admit that I used real sugar, but only 1/4 cup as the apples made the cake sweet enough for our taste. Also I used 2 real eggs and spelt flour plus some oats to make the 3/4 cup of flour. It worked out perfectly and I will surely make this again and again this autumn. Its so easy and the perfect gift.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing yet another superb recipe with us, Debbie!
