Throw this on a cake plate with an extra handful of Macadamias and some ice cream and let every body dive in and serve themselves.
  • 125 gm melted butter ( 1 stick)
  • 2 apples diced ( approximately 3 cups )
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1½ cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of Bicarbonate of soda
  • ¾ teaspoon of baking powder ( optional)
  • 1- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger ( nutmeg or cardamom)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of Macadamias ( or other nuts)
  • approximately ¼ cup of milk
Garnish / optional
  • 1 Tablespoon extra melted butter for brushing

  • Extra chopped nuts
  1. Grease and line the bottom of a 22-25cm tin 9- 10 inch. Preheat the oven to 170C/340F – not too hot
  2. Melt your butter first. Set aside
  3. Put the chopped apples into a mixing bowl, big enough to fit all of the ingredients. Add the flour baking powder and soda, sugar and spices and mix up well .
  4. Break the egg into a cup and beat to break up. Pour into the bowl with the apple and flour mixture add the melted butter and the milk mix well with a spatula or spoon. Add a little more milk ( up to 2 Tablespoons ) if it seems very hard to mix. Mix quite well to make sure it is all incorporated.
  5. Spoon into the prepared cake tin and flatten with a spoon. Garnish with sliced apples painted with a little butter sprinkle with nuts and a little raw sugar if you like. ( I do!). I even glaze the top with melted caramel sauce too..
