We felt we just had to do another cake recipe with all of the gorgeous local apples raining down on us. This recipe is simple to make and feels particularly appropriate for Autumn- something about the colours and the wonderful flavours of apple and cinnamon together, some classics just never get old.
We've been thinking about adding an apple dessert to our menu so we hope to update you with more on this soon. In the meantime we'll be experimenting with lots of beautiful autumnal recipes where apples feature as the star of the dish!
This cake would be great with vegan vanilla ice cream, or salted caramel. We used fresh figs as an additional topping but feel free to top with any seasonal fresh fruit that you fancy.
