Very simple and very good! I used all whole wheat instead of white. Next time I want to try with raisins and nuts.

Delicious! I did make a couple of changes (sustituting brown sugar for white, and 1/2 cup wholewheat flour for 1/2 cup white), and I added all the optional items. The mix is very stiff before it goes into the tin, but with all the apple it comes out very moist - almost like a pudding rather than cake. Hot or cold it's awesome. It keeps well in the fridge.
