Apple and Cinnamon Cake

This is the perfect afternoon tea type of cake. It can also be a slightly decadent breakfast. It is lovely and moist and the apple pieces and sultanas make it feel almost healthy (almost…). It is a recipe my mum passed on to me, and is really hassle free to make.


  • 220g plain flour
  • 110g butter
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-2 tablespoons of milk
  • handful of sultanas
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 eating apples, peeled and cut into 1cm cubes
  • 1 tablespoon lemon rind
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar mixed with 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 1 teaspoon nutmeg


  • Mix everything except the apples, sultanas and brown sugar mixture until it forms a smooth batter.
  • Stir in the apples and sultanas.
  • Pour into a greased, lined 7in baking tin.
  • Sprinkle with the brown sugar mixture.
  • Bake for 45 minutes at 180 degrees centigrade, then test with a skewer or fork in the centre. If it comes out clean, the cake is done.
