I only discovered apple cake in recent years and I love it. What I like most is the contrast between the texture of the apple and the light sponge. The first time I tried apple cake it was at my friend Becca's house. I asked her for the recipe but she just shrugged and said she just made it up as she went along.
Now I am not one of these people who can just make up recipes as I go along, I like to follow the instructions to the letter to ensure I get the best results and I have been wanting to find the perfect apple cake recipe for a long time now and I pleased to say I have found it.
This Spiced Apple Cake is one of the World Baking Day recipes available at www.worldbakingday.com. It's ranked at Level 64 which means it is relatively challenging for someone who doesn't bake much. I am working my way up the levels and hope to bake something from Level 90+ and above by the time we get to Sunday 19th May.
If you like the flavour combination of cinnamon and apple you will enjoy this cake, and if you are brave enough to experiment a bit with the recipe I'd recommend adding some sultanas.
Not only do you get a delicious cake but your home will be filled with the most amazing smell. They say if you are trying to sell your house you should bake bread to make the house smell appealing. Forget bread and make this cake!
