If you love apples and cinnamon…..

School’s almost out here and right now I’m baking some cakes as a thank-you to the teachers in the Pre-School and the Primary School where JDmac (6) and Princessmac (4) attend.

This recipe is a family favourite so I thought I would share it with you.

A Honeyed Sultana-topped Apple Sauce Cake.


1 Bramley apple

1dssp water

1/2oz sugar

1/4tsp cinnamon powder

4oz butter

6oz caster sugar

2oz sultanas

2 small eggs lightly beaten

6oz self-raising flour


2oz sultanas

1/2tsp cinnamon powder

2dssp honey


Peel, core and slice the apple, then poach in the water, sugar and cinnamon powder for 3-4 minutes until cooked and soft. Leave to cool. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the cold, pureed apples, sultanas and lightly beaten eggs. Mix well together, then add the sieved flour in 2-3 additions. Mix well, then transfer to an oiled and lined loose bottom tin. Cook at 180C/375F/gas mark 5 for 30 minutes until golden and firm to the touch. Unmould. Bubble together the sultanas, cinnamon and honey and pour over the top of the cake when still warm.

  1. This looks SO nice…..shame the ONLY thing I don’t like is sultanas! Wonder if you could use anything in place of the sultanas??


  2. mmmmm – well you could probably just drop them from the cake mixture then
    perhaps stew more apples and cinnamon mixed with the honey for the topping.

    only guessing really..

  3. I have tried Mummymac cake one day at her coffee morning. Well it was
    wasYummy! It is the sort of cake you just could take an extra piece.
    Only you have to watch the figure!
