Moist Apple Loaf Cake

Our neighbors have a massive apple tree that always has a few branches drooping into our yard. I grabbed two apples today and wanted to make something not-too-sweet-just-sweet-enough, that was more apples than not. Also, I'm always on the lookout for one bowl recipes. This fit the bill perfectly, and was exactly what I wanted, especially after a few tweaks. I added a bit of cornmeal for texture in the loaf, and subbed golden caster sugar for the mix of brown and white that the original recipe called for. And voila, a moist full-of-apple loaf that is also a cake.

Adapted from Bestrecipes

1½ cups self-raising flour
1 level teaspoon cinnamon
1 level teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
3/4 cup golden caster sugar
2 large or 3 medium apples, diced (I left the peel on)
½ cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1. Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda and spice together and stir through sugar. Make a well in centre, add all other ingredients and mix thoroughly.

2. Pour into a greased round cake tin.

3. Cook at 180°C for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
