Schoolbox Apple Cake

    1 hour 10 minutes

    As part of my New Years resolution to use less prepackaged food in my kids lunchbox, well, I have had to come up with some ideas for unique, tasty, fun food. I may have one of the most stubborn and picky eaters in the country. My other cherub eats anything you give her. So, lunch box packing can sometimes be rather difficult. One loves variety and doesn't like boring food. The other, well, he can eat the same thing every day and be content.

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and line a 20cm round cake pan.
    2. Core and quarter apples, then slice each quarter into further quarters (ie. 16 slices per apple).
    3. Use an electric mixer to cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add eggs one at a time until well combined. Add chia seed, flour, and cream, beat until smooth.
    4. Pour into prepared pan and press apple slices, skin side up, into batter.
    5. The apple slices will be nearly touching. Sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg, and caster sugar.
    6. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Allow cake to cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
