Spicy Apple Cake Recipe


This recipe was recommended and passed on to me as an old family favourite. It originally came as having one cup of sugar but I’ve reduced that to suit my taste.


  • 1 cup peeled and chopped apple
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 125 gm melted butter
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1  1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup sticky raisins


Place the chopped apples in a mixing bowl and sprinkle with the sugar. Stir and let stand for 5 minutes.  Blend the melted butter and beaten egg into the apple.  Sift the dry ingredients together and stir into the mixture until just combined.  Add the raisins and nuts.  Turn the mixture into a greased 8 x 3in (20 x 6.5cm) baking tin and bake at 180 degrees C for 50 to 60 minutes or until cooked.   Cool before turning out of the tin.  When cool, sprinkle with sugar.
