Step 1

Preheat oven to 160C (fan forced).

Step 2

Spray a 20cm (base measurement) square cake tin with cooking spray and line tin with baking paper, allowing paper to overhand the sides.

Step 3

Combine flours, sugar, bicarbonate of soda and mixed spice in a large bowl and add egg, egg white, melted margarine and mix until well combined and then stir in chopped apples.

Step 4

Spoon mixture into prepared tin and bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Step 5

Set aside in pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Step 6

Meanwhile, melt the extra 1 tablespoon margarine in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat and add sliced apples and cook, stirring often, for 8 to 10 minutes or until apples are tender and golden, adding 1 tablespoon water every 4 minutes and stirring until it evaporates.

Step 7

Remove pan from heat and stir in maple syrup.

Step 8

Cut cake into squares and top with the pan-fried apple slices and fruche and sprinkle with a little extra mixed spice if you like.

Step 9

TIP 1 - You will need about 530 grams (about 5 apples) to give you 4 cups peeled and chopped apples and 170 grams (about 1 1/2) apples to give you 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced apples.

Step 10

TIP 2- Keep cake in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

No special items needed.



Very good snack cake. We used regular white sugar and butter (instead of margarine). Easy to make and wonderful to eat. Thanks for sharing!
