    This is a moist dense cake that is good on its own but also great topped with icing. It keeps well and is good for any occasion.

    Serves: 24 

    • 1 cup (250ml) vegetable oil
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 cups (440g) white sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 4 cups apples, peeled, cored and diced
