Apple Snack Cake

Looking for a really easy apple cake, with tasty chunks of fruit and a touch of spice, that's perfect for sharing? This cake is all of that and more - great flavor, texture and always popular. 

Let’s get started!

Gather your ingredients


This cake uses common ingredients, including flour, sugar, butter, eggs, apples and spices. 

Make the base cake mixture


Cream together the butter and sugar then add the egg. Separately mix the dry ingredients then combine.

Dice the apples


Peel and core the apple then cut the apple into small bite sized pieces.  Then add these to the batter along with the dates.

Transfer to baking tin


It's best to line the tin to make it easier to remove after baking. Smooth the top down so it's an even thickness.



Bake until an even brown. Also, test the middle with a skewer - it should come out clean. If it's wet with batter, bake a little longer.

Perfect on it's own or with a cup of coffee or tea!
