This is a recipe I saved from a magazine I had collected so long back that I don’t remember its origins. Over time I have made some adjustments to suit our taste, and sometimes to suit the ingredients I have on hand. I have made this apple cake more times than I can remember and it has never failed to elicit appreciation from the family and friends who have had it.
I usually make this cake with apples, but it tastes just as good if made with pears.
Last week, I bought some apples which turned out not particularly sweet and so there were no takers for them. I’m also hosting Think Spice, Think Nutmeg this month and hadn’t yet got around to making something “nutmeggy” for it. It doesn’t seem right not to have a submission for my event, somehow. So I tweaked the recipe once more and it now includes nutmeg!
