Scrumping Scrumptious Apple Cake

This week hubby went scrumping in our friends parents garden, which is officially not scrumping as he had their permission, but I like the word so I’m using it. Here he is in action.

Didn’t he do well…..here’s a snapshot of the bounty I was brought home – 2 types of delicious apples, pears and quinces. Luckily we are a family of fruit lovers with apples being a big hit with the toddler girl and I have a large freezer.

So what do you make when surrounded by apples? So far we’ve made green tomato chutney (which uses apples as well as tomatoes), quince apple jelly, we’ve eaten lots and frozen lots. The pile remaining in the kitchen have been calling to me, so I delved into the pile and whipped up this beautiful cake. It has apple inside it and apple on the top, a real applicious mouthful to eat. I really like the crumb and texture of this cake, it’s light and airy, you certainly wouldn’t know it was gluten/wheat free.
