2lb Loaf tin
loaf tin liners
3regular eating apples(I used Royal Gala)
250gramslight brown soft sugar
½teaspoonmixed spice(nutmeg and cinnamon)
100gramsfudge pieces(I got mine from Sainsburys)
2tablespoonsgranulated sugar(sprinkle when cool)
Line 2 x 2lb loaf tins with liners and preheat the oven to 180ºC/160º fan.
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. You can do this in a stnad mixer or by hand in a mixing bowl.
Add the eggs one a time and mix in.
Sieve the flour and baking powder in to the mix and gently stir it in.
Add the spices and fudge pieces and gently fold into the mixture.
Peel and chop the apples in to small 1cm size chunks.
Sprinkle on the lemon juice and using kitchen paper blot off any excess juice.
Mix into the cake mixture and divide evenly between the two loaf tins.
Pop into the oven and bake for 40-55 minutes until golden brown and until a cake tester comes out clean.
Leave to cool on a wire rack and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
You can serve it warm or cold. Both taste great.
• It tastes good cold and also works really well when it's still warm with custard or ice cream.• It is easily to store in an air tight container somewhere cool.• It will last for 3-5 days if you don't manage to eat it all on the first day.
