The Friday list and tea cake


I was reminded this week that the above picture was recently posted without a recipe. It was our afternoon tea at Mum's art class weekend and I’m sorry for leaving it out because this one is a an absolute winner. So here below and a little late is the recipe for our apple and walnut tea cake. It comes from Diana Walker who gave it to me about seven years ago when I was helping out on a magazine shoot at her family’s farm. She made this for the crew's morning tea, we ended up printing the recipe and it was one of our most popular cakes ever. Thank you again Diana!

Di Walker's Apple and Walnut Cake

2 cups chopped apples
1 3/4 cups caster sugar
2 eggs, beaten
250g melted butter
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
2 1/2 cups plain, wholemeal flour
1 tsp bicarb soda
1 tsp mixed spice

Preheat oven to 180C and prepare a 24cm (or thereabouts) springform tin. Combine apples, sugar, eggs, butter, walnuts and raisins in a large bowl. Sift in the dry ingredients and fold gently until just combined. Pour into the cake tin and bake for about 40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Dust with icing sugar and serve with a little natural yogurt or cream.
