Apple and Walnut Cake

Category: ,

This is a very easy dessert to make and a perfect end to the Christmas dinner as it is very light. It can be made as one large cake or if you have small flan rings made into individual ones. This cake is very versatile and a good base to carry a lot of other flavours like berries, dried fruits, pears, apricots or figs.
Serve this cake with vanilla ice cream and custard.

Serves 6;
250g self-raising flour
1tsp salt
120g cold butter, diced
100g walnuts, roasted
120g caster sugar
1tsp ground ginger
1tsp cinnamon
4 apples, peeled and diced
2 eggs beaten
1tbls brandy


Sift the flour and salt into a bowl, add the diced butter and rub the butter through your fingers with the flour until the mix resembles breadcrumbs. Add the walnuts, sugar, ginger, cinnamon and apples mix well. Add the beaten eggs and brandy and mix until everything is incorporated.

Butter your flan ring very well and spoon the prepared mix into them, bake at 180c for 20-25mins or until golden brown and cooked through in the centre. Remove from the oven and let stand for 30mins in the tin. This will make it easier to remove.
Turn the cake out and cut into wedges, serve with vanilla ice cream and custard, garnish with mint and strawberries if desired.
