Recipe: Spiced apple & sultana slices


These slices are perfect for lunchbox treats or with an afternoon cup of tea.

Packed full of fruit which keeps it moist and naturally sweet, spiced perfectly with cinnamon and ginger, these cake slices have a carrot cake type texture and similar taste.

They would taste lovely with a cream cheese frosting but I kept mine plain for the children (they are odd creatures and hate any sort of cream/ frosting on cakes!)

This recipe fills 2 x 18cm square tins, which is approximately 18-20 slices.






INGREDIENTS
150ml vegetable oil
175g dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
250g eating apples (prepared weight - approximated 3 apples) peeled, cored & coarsely grated
200g self raising flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
25g rolled oats
50g ground almonds
100g sultanas
zest of 1 lemon

METHOD
1. Preheat the oven to 180c and line 2 x 18cm square tins with parchment paper and brush with a little oil.

2. Put the sugar and eggs in a large mixing bowl & whisk until glossy. Slowly add in the oil, still stirring as you go.

3. Stir in the grated apple, the fold in all the other ingredients. 

4. Divide the mixture equally between the two lined tins and bake for 20-25 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean.

5. Allow to cool and then cut into slices.

  1. They sound delicious! And another use for my mountain of apples in the pantry! I love frosting on my cakes, but would probably leave them plain for the kids.
