This recipe explains the breadmaker method. The oven method is extremely basic and explained above. Twice now I have baked this cake in the bread maker without any baking powder or bi carb soda. It was just as good... so I leave it up to you whether or not you want to include those 2 ingredients! I definitely would not run out to buy them for this cake if they were missing from my cupboard.
Ingredients
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1½ cups plain flour
  • ½ tsp bi carb soda (baking soda)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp milk or yogurt
  • 1½ cups peeled and chopped sour apple eg Granny Smith (2 small apples)
  • 2 tsp extra sugar
Instructions
  1. Add in the oil and egg and mix round with a spatula until the egg is properly dispersed through the oil
  2. Add all the other ingredients, except the apple and extra sugar
  3. Put the breadmaker into a kneading program or start it on a normal bread cycle, knead 3 mins
  4. Stop the machine, using a spatula make sure all the flour has been incorporated
  5. Restart the machine and let the dough be mixed thoroughly.
  6. Add the chopped apple
  7. Knead for a minute or two until the mixture has incorporated all the loose apple.
  8. Add a little milk or yogurt if the mixture looks a little dry
  9. Turn off the machine, take the loaf tin out of the machine.
  10. Remove the blade. This should be very simple, If not, leave it in.
  11. Level the dough mixture in the loaf tin
  12. Sprinkle the top of the cake with the extra sugar
  13. Put the loaf tin in the bread maker
  14. Put the baking cycle on for cakes.
  15. Generally there is no timer. Mine is a straight 60 minutes which is perfect for this amount.
  16. When finished remove immediately.from loaf tin and leave to cool if you can resist the temptation to eat it hot!
  17. Serve with yogurt, cream or ice cream.
