I made this cake to take with us this week to the Eisteddfod. We took a picnic lunch so cake is always a necessary addition.

Even though it looked quite plain, this cake is lovely and moist and full of flavour.


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 3/4 cup stewed apple or apple butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Sugar mix

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sultanas

Put all the ingredients in a large bowl and blend on low speed until moistened, then medium speed for 2 minutes.

Pour 1/2 the batter in a greased ย and lined 13 x 9 inch cake pan. Sprinkle with sugar mix and then spoon the other 1/2 of the batter on top.

Bake at 180 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes.
