  • 115 g dairy free spread/sunflower oil if using spread it'll need to be melted first
  • 115 g soft brown sugar
  • 3 medium apples (approx 400g) peeled, cored and chopped
  • 225 g plain flour I used half wholemeal and half plain
  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • 100 g sultanas optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C( fan)/200°C/gas mark 6.
  2. Lightly grease a bundt tin or alternative cake tin eg a 900g loaf tin or 20cm round cake tin. If using a loaf tin or round tin line with baking paper.

  3. Put the prepared apples in a small saucepan with a dash of water. Cook until soft then purée with a handheld blender or mash well with a fork. Set aside and allow to cool.
  4. Sift the flour, baking powder and spices together in a large mixing bowl. Mix well.

  5. In a separate bowl mix the sunflower oil (or melted dairy free spread) and sugar together.

  6. Fold into the flour, then stir through the apple purée.
  7. Transfer to your cake tin.
  8. Bake for 25-30 mins in a bundt tin or up to 40 minutes in a larger tin until the cake is firm to the touch and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
