Method

00:30
 
Preheat oven to 180°C.

Grease the cake tin and line the base with greaseproof paper.

Grate 1/3 of the apple, squeezing out the excess juice. Core, peel and chop the rest.

Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together.  Stir in the brown sugar, apples and pre-roasted nuts until well combined.

In a separate bowl whisk together the butter, eggs, milk and vanilla essence.

Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir with a large metal spoon until just combined. It is important that the ingredients are only just combined. If the mixture is over-mixed, the cake will have a tough texture.

Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and bake until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the centre of the mixture comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and allow a few minutes to cool.

Mix together the topping ingredients.
Removing the cake and place on a cooling rack. Immediately brush top of cake with the cinnamon sugar mixture and allow to stand until ready to serve.

Note: The butter can be substituted for vegetable oil if you like - this will also ensure the cake keeps for longer
