Apple Cake Recipe for Apple Day

Have you heard of World Apple Day? What better way to celebrate it than by sharing this apple cake recipe and remind you of a few other easy autumnal puddings and cakes made with the humble apple.

This is a lovely stodgy pudding type cake which is nice to eat cold by the slice or great served warm with custard.

World Apple Day began in England in 1990 not only to celebrate apples and orchards but to bring awareness of the UK landscape, ecology, and its countryside customs. Many local and large organisations, such as the Women’s Institute, National and Wildlife Trusts, join in with this national day.

  1. oh my this sounds scrumptious, and I have a whole bowl of apples that need using up pretty quick too. I also have all the other ingredients (apart from sultanas) I think I may have to give this a go.
