- STEP 1
First make the stewed apple. Peel, core and chop the apple into chunks and add into a large pan with the sugar, cinammon and splash of water. Heat on high until a smooth paste is formed - don't worry about a few lumps. Leave to cool in a bowl of cold water/in the fridge.
- STEP 2
Preheat the oven to 150C fan (170C conventional) and grease a medium sized cake tin.
- STEP 3
Cream the margarine and sugar together in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
- STEP 4
Add the rest of the ingredients, including the cooled stewed apple - if it's too hot then the mixture, eggs in particular, will begin to cook.
- STEP 5
Mix until fully combined and pour into the prepared cake tin. Place in the oven and leave for 35-45mins. It won't rise too much, but is ready when a skewer comes out clean.
- STEP 6
Leave to cool before removing from the tin - it is a delicate cake that will fall apart if not left for long enough.
