Apple Thyme Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Aunty Dotty

This is a few years old this recipe, so I can't remember where it came from. It's an unusual but beautiful combination. My notes say to have it with great thick cream and a good Shiraz (! No idea where that came from! )

Very tasty. I used 2 teaspoons of dried thyme (didn't have fresh), but could have used more. This was like a moist cornbread. I used Splenda and it turned out fine. I will try this with rosemary, too! Thanks for posting. P.S. Had to use my cheap camera, due to dead battery in my good one, so the pics aren't the best! :)
