Have made this several times and everyone thinks it is great - makes a moist cake. I add a heaped teaspoon of mixed spice to the mixture and soak the apple in the lemon juice and a few tablespoons of brandy - which replaces the milk.Cake4tea in Sheffield loved it
Delicious, but very crumbly. I struggled to get it onto the cooling rack. Did I need more milk maybe?portablewendy in loved it
Perfect if i do say so myself. Had to put some cinnamon in the main ingrediants as i love the stuff and it worked out well.MAGNUM_PI in Nirvana loved it
