Got this from WA CWA book-I think. It was that long ago. It is a lovely moist cake that keeps for ages. It was a staple when we went camping in the Flinders. It also makes a large cake...freezes well. Granny Smiths work well but any cooking apple would do.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the butter and sugar into the still HOT apples.
  2. Stir in all the remaining ingredients.
  3. Pour into a 14" x 10" greased pan. (I use a clear pyrex dish).
  4. Bake for 1-1 1/2 hours @ 180°C
  5. You can also serve this as a desert, sprinkle with icing sugar and a large dollop of cream.
  6. Unsweetened canned pie apples (heated) can also be used (easier to measure the amount).
