Really nice combination of flavours. I have made this loads but used crystallised ginger instead of peel.
looks great can't wait to try making this great looking cake.
The grated orange peel gave this cake a very strong orange flavor, which worked out just fine since I didn't have any candied peel on hand. I substituted with some dried cranberries instead, and it was delicious. I could also see skipping the orange peel entirely and possibly substituting that with some cinnamon and adding raisins. The cake stayed nice and moist, and more apples could probably be added to make it even more so. This recipe is definitely fun to play with.
