I loved this cake! It wasn't 'wet' like the method said, and I added WAY too much apple because I was using quite large ones, but I left the mix as it was, baked it for the time that it said, and whilst it was a little on the dry side, it went down really well with my family :)

I made mini muffins using this recipe - just used a 500g tub of homemade apple sauce instead of chopped apples and swapped coconut oil for the butter. With some added vanilla and almond slivers on top, these came out stunning. And only took ten minutes to bake at 170. Suggest those who don't want to wait long, make muffins instead of a whole cake!!
Delicious and very moist.

Didn't work for me. I cooked it for an extra 25 mins but it was still underdone

Easy & Yummy ;) love this combination!!! Baked this cake twice this week, first time as above and 2nd time using 2 big red apples and for a healthier alternative I used brown sugar instead of white sugar :) if you have not tried it yet, don't delay, it's totally worth it!!!! :D Good Luck :)

What size cake tin? - this is essential to know especially when baking!!!

Fabulous cake. Very quick to make. I used gluten free flour, as I am gluten intolerant, and coconut palm sugar to reduce the GI. As others have said, it needs more liquid, so I added an extra egg (2 large eggs In total) and the cake turned out perfectly. So good, you wouldn't guess it was gluten-free. The only other thing I would change in future is to add a little extra cinnamon as, although I sprinkled some into the mixture, and on the topping, you couldn't really taste it.

Tried this recipe this afternoon. I included 2 medium eggs instead of 1 large one. Only had two apples left in the house so I added a mashed banana to the mix. I also used a mix of white and soft brown sugar as I had run out of the white. Came out GREAT! I'll definitely be trying again. Probably next time I'll add another banana and sultanas / raisins - and maybe some more milk. Only thought of sultanas after I'd baked it. I think they'd go well with this cake. Oh I also added a teaspoon of vanilla essence! Delish :) Cake cooked VERY quickly - probably because the tin I used was somewhat wide and so the cake wasn't very deep. All in all a very nice cake and results are great for such little effort.

I made this cake with my two children this afternoon. We added a bit more than a sprinkling of cinnamon, a handful of mixed fruit, grated two apples and finely diced the other two apples. Cooked at 170 in a fan oven for 40 minutes. The cake is moist, yummy and I had squeals of delight and asking for more from the children :)

Very good recipe although I did follow other advice posted here and add an extra egg and a little more milk to loosen up the mix, plus a pinch of baking powder and cinnamon. It took an hour and a quarter for my cake to cook but the result was very tasty and moist. Will definitely cook again :) Thank you for this lovely, easy recipe idea.

Super simple with excellent results. I was sceptical as it was so easy and quick to prepare but came out delicious. I used a medium egg and a lot more cinnamon than a sprinkle!

This was a very easy recipe to put together, and after a few tweaks we ended up with a delicious result. We found that the mixture was very dry (not wet as stated in the recipe) so we added a little extra milk. We also found that the cake needed an extra 15-20 minutes in the oven to cook through properly.

Not that impressed to be honest, the quantities make an extremely dry mixture (unable to use) even though it states it should be fairly wet, also simple things like cooking or eating apples? What is 175 in gas? What weight of apples rather than saying 4 or 5? (The consistency will then vary if they are small or big apples.)
Recipe needs refining.

Add a teaspoon of mace and a tablespoon of cinnamon to the cake mix ... Yummy!

This cake is beautifully moist. I added an extra egg and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to the recipe as me and my kids love it. I also misread the recipe and thought that I should grate the apple (oops) but this created a lovely texture - kind of puddingy rather than cakey. I made a cinnamon butter icing which I piped round the edges, this worked really well.

I am just making it for the second time, this time I have used 1 and a half times the mixture and 3 eggs. I hope it is as yummy as the first time!

Delicious ! - I have made this cake twice in one week! First time I added walnuts - second time I added blueberries. Recommend adding blueberries! Also bought some Waitrose cinnamon sugar for the dusting/sprinkling. 10/10 for this recipe!

I had to add a little extra milk to the mixture, but this a fantastic recipe, easy even for someone who struggles with cooking :-) And it tastes great!

A lovely cake/pudding that my hungry teenage boys loved. I got a bit nervous when layering in the pan as the mixture didn't seem to cover the apple. It turned out really well though. Very 'farmhouse kitchen'.

extremely quick and hassle free to make, turned out good - not exactly a show piece but great if you want a quick cake with only staples in the house (and you don't feel like making a crumble or a pie). added two chopped bananas along with the apples, worked well, I'm sure walnuts would be great too. thanks for sharing the recipe!

I used this recipe but made it into 12 cupcakes rather than a loaf cake. Cooked them for about 25 mins on 170 degrees fan. I followed others advice and used two medium eggs and a teaspoon of cinnamon. I grated three apples and diced the other one which gives them a nice texture. Delicious!
