Have you got an excess of apples, or some sitting in the fruit bowl that are a little less firm than you like them? Turn them into this tasty loaf cake which is superb served hot with custard or ice cream. The original recipe called for raisins to be added but my ‘kidlets’ are not fans of raisins so I opted to make it a little less healthy 😉 and added chocolate chips instead! Chocolate chips work really well in this recipe as the apple flavour is quite subtle so does not clash with the chocolate at all.
[yumprint-recipe id=’18’] If I really have a load of apples that are going to waste, I make a few loaves and freeze them. They make a tasty alternative to regular toast when smothered in melting butter and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Delicious.
I think I may try other additions to the loaf instead of the chocolate chips to change it up a bit. Perhaps nuts or other dried fruits or a handful of seeds. What do you think?
