Cake with Apple and Sultanas

    45 minutes

    This is a very thin cake baked in a tray so it is almost thin enough to call a slice. The top is crammed with apples and sultanas.

    I have literally just eaten some of this with my family and it was really good! I thought that it would be too apple-y, but it was just right. I used self-raising flour, so only added 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and I had to add some milk to the cake mixture because it was going to be way too dry. I also used mixed fruit on top the cake and sprinkled cinnamon on the top which was nice.  -  02 Jan 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I like this cake. I bought a box of wonderful Fuji apples and wanted to make some things that I hadn't made before. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I think the temperature for baking it was a little high, and as a result, the cake and the apples turned out a little dry. I would lower the temp to 375. The flavor is great and I loved the lemon zest and the shortcake-like cake layer. We ate a piece right out of the pan, and then later with vanilla ice cream on top, and then even later, with our coffee! Really good, thanks for the recipe.  -  05 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
