Apple Slice

As soon as I read the story behind this recipe, I wanted to try out this cake and I'm glad I did. This is a cake that we enjoyed thoroughly! The recipe is also so easy to put together with very few ingredients.

Apple Slice

I came across this recipe at Life of Clare. Clare's grandmother sent this recipe to the papers 25 years ago and a reader who has been making this particular cake for 25 years wanted to thank Clare's grandma for this awesome recipe. The recipe was re published 25 years later in The Herald Sun.

A recipe that people were raving about and baking more than 100's of times , for over 25 years....!! I simply had to try it out! And I was not disappointed! I loved the simplicity of this cake, so few ingredients and such a delightful cake! Grandma's do have beautiful recipes!!

Apple Slice

1. If you don't have self raising flour, you can use 2 cups maida (all purpose flour) and 3 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt.
2. I used granulated sugar but pulsed it in a blender to help dissolve easily.
3. Use how much ever cinnamon and sugar you want, I used about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp sugar.

Until next time,
