Good to know…
You can make this up to two days in advance and keep in the fridge. On hot days it’s best kept refrigerated. You can make the cake in a bowl and mix with a spoon. It’s not essential to peel the apples. You can leave the nuts out and use self-raising flour. You can use any type of apple you have at home. Freezer friendly.
