Feeding the Funky Bunch: Apple Tea Cake


My friend L made this cake for me years ago and I immediately asked for the recipe – it was so delicious! This has to be one of the quickest cakes to mix up and throw in a tin for a lovely morning or afternoon treat. It does take about an hour in the oven though so make sure you plan ahead for the baking time.


  • 1 & 1/2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • 125g melted butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 2 cups grated apple (skin on) (approx 2-3 apples)
  • 1 cup caster sugar


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180C
  2. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix together well
  3. Pour into a greased and lined loaf tin (it’s quite a ‘wet’ mixture)
  4. Bake 55-60 min
