Spiced Apple Loaf

Recipe by Janet 6
READY IN: 1hr 30mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Pre-heat oven to gas 4 or 180.
  • Line a 2lb loaf tin with greasproof paper.
  • Peel and core the apples, cut into chunks, place in a pan and cover with water, bring to the boil and simmer until the apples are just starting to soften. Drain and add a little sugar to taste (I prefer the apples to be quite tart). Leave to one side to cool.
  • Put all dry ingredients into a large bowl together and mix roughly.
  • Next add all wet ingredients at same time, mix until all of the flour mixture is taken up.
  • Pour into the loaf tin and cook for 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 hours until browned.
  • When the cake is cooked, LEAVE IT IN THE TIN until cool, then wrap in foil.
  • This cake is best left until the next day to eat (if you can wait that long!).
