I’m not 100% sure where this recipe originates from. But all I know is Mum makes it every Christmas in little care sized packages and every Easter to share and it’s great! It’s almost replaced fruit cake for our family.
You can use any type of apples, gluten free flour and remove the nuts if allergic. It smells like autumn or Christmas as I imagine it to be in America with all the yummy spices.
Give it a go and let me know what you think,

Dutch Apple Cake
2 chopped apples
1 cup sugar
1 & 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup walnuts
1 tsp cinnamon
1tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tspn salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup raisins
125gm butter - melted (or oil)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Chop apple into chunks (or 1 & 3/4 cup chunky pie filling). Sprinkle over sugar & leave.
Sift all other dry ingredients together into another big bowl. Add nuts and raisins.
Add beaten egg & butter/oil. I used the 1 litre micropitcher from Tupperware to melt my butter.
Stir all together with apple/sugar mix.
Put in cake tin & bake at 180 degrees for 50 -60 mins. I used our Tupperware round silicone form for a cake tin. It's great as you don't need to grease it and it never sticks! If the cake looks a bit dark at 50 mins, turn down & leave for 10-15 mins.
Remove from oven and allow to cool before turning out. Best enjoyed warm, served plain or with a dash of whipped cream or ice cream and a cup of coffee.
