Apple and Cinnamon Cake

I don’t seem to be making much headway with the piles of apples that need using up. I haven’t had time to make chutney and apple galette doesn’t exactly use up many apples! This cake is wonderfully autumnal, I think it’s the warm, cosy nature of cinnamon. It is perfect as a pudding served with dairy and egg-free custard, but would also be delicious served with a good cup of tea or coffee.

  1. This looks seriously decadent! I think I always try to make my apple cakes too healthy, then they aren’t as enjoyable. Maybe I can work up a compromise in the middle with this recipe and mine 😉
