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  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.

On Friday night we had friends over for our daughters 10th birthday.

We had baked potatoes with bolognaise sauce, coleslaw, grated cheese and sour cream.

They were delicious and everyone really enjoyed them, and they were so easy.

We had cooked potatoes and sauce left, which is great for the next day.

On Saturday night we had some more visitors and we were just going to have baked potatoes again but my oldest daughter suggested we should turn the left overs into a baked potato casserole.

This was a great idea.


We sliced up the potatoes and layered it with the bolognaise. We covered the whole lot with grated cheese and baked it in a moderate oven for about an hour.

We served it again with the coleslaw and sour cream and was it delicious.
