Cakes with Fresh Fruits

Apple Spice Loaf

Preheat the oven to 160C/325F/gas mark 3

Use a 900g/2 lb loaf tin.

Grease and line the loaf tin. Peel and core the apples and place with lemon juice and water in a saucepan. Cook over a low heat until the fruit is soft and pulpy. Mash with a wooden spoon and leave to cool. Place the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Add flour to the bowl and sift the baking powder, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and mace over the top.

Add the apple mixture, walnuts, sultanas, dates and stir until all the ingredients are evenly mixed with the creamed mixture. Stir in the milk. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and smooth the surface.

Topping: Mix the sugar, nuts and cinnamon together and sprinkle over the uncooked cake. Bake for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours. Test with a warm knife. Allow to cool in the baking tin for 15 minutes then invert onto wire rack to cool completely.
