  • 2 Eggs.
  • 100 g Nuts of choice (optional), e.g. pecan or walnut or macadamia
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1 pinch salt

Recipe's preparation

    Also suitable for TM5
  1. ) Preheat oven to 155 C fan forced

    Grease and line a 20 x 5 cm round cake pan.


  2. ) Place prepared apples in TM bowl.

    Chop 2 sec / speed 4

    Remove from TM bowl.

    Hand chop with a knife (halving is often enough) any really large apple pieces that remain that are bigger than about 1cm in size.

    (Don't be tempted to instead chop the apple longer in the TM as you don't want the apple pieces too fine. Really fine pieces affect the keeping of any uneaten cake by making the baked cake soggy and unappertising after a day or two.)


    Rinse & dry bowl.


  3. ) Place sugar in TM bowl.

    Mill into caster sugar 5 sec / speed 10


  4. ) Add oil, milk & eggs.

    Mix 10sec / speed 5


    (The oil used in this recipe is an oil that is liquid at room temperature. I prefer a mild tasting oil like sunflower or grape-seed - but I only use a preservative-free oil that contains no anti-oxidants 310-321. A stronger tasting oil like extra-virgin olive oil [naturally preservative-free] can also be used if you don't mind the taste in the finished cake.)


    (Alternatively to a liquid oil, 170g of butter or coconut oil can be used instead. To use butter or coconut oil set the caster sugar aside & place the butter or coconut oil in the TM bowl to melt 2 min / 60 degrees / speed 4 [repeat if necessary]. Return sugar to bowl with milk & eggs and follow instructions as above.)


  5. ) [Optional] Add nuts & chop 1sec / speed 5 - repeat if not chopped to desired size.


  6. ) Add dry ingredients.

    Mix 10 sec / speed 5 -  if using nuts.


  7. ) Fold in apple manually using spatula into mixture in TM bowl.


  8. ) Pour mixture into cake pan.

    Bake for about 45-60 minutes until cooked.

    Cool on rack.

Recipe can also be used to make muffins.

* Non-dairy if use a non-dairy milk and do not use the alternative butter.

* Lactose free if use a lactose free milk.

* Nut-free if do not use the optional nuts.

* Gluten-free if use gluten free flour.

* Egg-free if use an egg replacer (e.g. Orgran No Egg [gluten free]) according to the packet instructions.

* Vegan if go non-dairy & no-egg (as above).

* Low Salicylate if omit the spices which can be optionally replaced with 1 tsp natural vanila essence (if you are OK with vanilla), use white sugar instead of raw, use ripe pears (packham & bartlet varieties especially are negligible in salicylates, other varieties are negligable to low) instead of apples or use golden delicious apples which are low-salicylate, omit the nuts or use raw cashews, and use butter or a salycilate-free oil like sunflower (not cold-pressed unless it is soy or rice-bran) & preservative-free if without anti-oxidants 310-321. Hand-dice the pears as their softness would make them difficult to chop in the TM without over-processing. If sensitive to whole-grain wheat but OK with white wheat flour do not use the wholemeal flour.
