The stewed apple in this chocolate cake creates a very moist crumb and a natural sweetness that makes this one of my favourite cakes.

i doubled all the ingredients except the apple and made a massive tray bake.which all got devoured at the Steve parsons gig tonight. - 18 Oct 2015


This is a great cake. I had only a bit over a cup of apple so used part milk and the apple taste was perfect, as was the texture. Also there was a whole lot of mixture so I used the cake tin specified and half a dozen muffins too. My family of four ate the whole lot in under two days. Try it for a pudding, just warm with a bit of cream. - 07 Feb 2013


Just made this cake - it is quick and easy and tasts geat. Made for moning tea with friends - they all loved it. I had to make up the apple and thought it may have been a little warm when I added it - didn't matter, worked anyway. Cheers for the recipe. - 06 Feb 2013
