Nicky’s mum used to make this apple cake using fallen apples from her garden. Now Nicky’s in the big smoke, she makes it using the apples from her box.
* There are lots of twists you can add to this recipe. Play around with herbs and spices. You can also nuts or a little dried fruit, or even chocolate.
This is an awesome apple cake recipe - definitely the best I've encountered. I didn't have any cardamom so I used 1/2 tsp of cinnamon with 1/2 tsp of ground ginger, and it was lovely. I also sneaked in a little milk at the end, as the batter felt slightly dry, but the end result was perfect.
I followed the recipe - I am no master baker - and it came out out perfectly. This cake is so moist and delicious. I left out the cinnamon as my boyfriend doesn't like it and just added the cardamon and it was still delicious. Such an intense warming apple flavour. If you like apple desserts you must make this! Delicious hot and cold - my boyfriend also doesn't like hot desserts but I do! We had it with cream and ice-cream and on it's own. It would be delicious with anything!!
Turned out nicely - nice and moist. I added the cardamom and fresh ginger which gave it an interesting zing, although I may add a bit more cardamom and a little less ginger next time. I had some crumble topping that I needed to use up, so I chucked it on top for extra crunch and calories!
I added milk - otherwise it was too dry.
