Apple and Pecan Cake

I have had this recipe in my book for so many years now and every time I decide to make it, I wonder why I don't cook it more often. It's one of those recipes that both the men and the ladies love and due to the requests I get for copies of it, I know you will pick it as a winner just like I did. This will make into 2 loaf tins or 1 square cake. I prefer the loafs as it is easier to slice and tastes great with a little fresh butter spread on it when cooled. Serve this at afternoon tea parties and you will always be a winner.


125 grams melted butter
2 cooking apples
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups SR flour
1 teaspoon bi carb soda
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice or mixed spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg

Peel, core and cut apples in chunks and mix in the sugar to them. Beat the egg into cooled butter and then add to the apples. Sift flour, bi carb, spices, salt and mix in the nuts. Add the flour mix to the rest and stir through thoroughly with electric beater. Spoon into a greased 20 cm square tin or two small loaf tins and bake at 175 gas or 180 in an electric oven for 45 - 55 minutes or until springs back when lightly touched in the middle.
