Apple Tea Cake



Whilst I'm not a wonderful cook like others in my family, I don't mind cooking a lovely old fashioned cake every now and then.  One of my favourite cakes to cook is actually a lemon and coconut cake which is an old Woman's Weekly recipe.  However, I think my family may be a little bit 'over' my lemon cake so tonight I went in search of something new to cook.  I didn't have to search very far as I found a recipe I am going to try in the latest Real Living magazine.  My family and I are all heading away down to my cousin's beach house this weekend so I might just try my hand at this recipe tomorrow night.  I figure that if I post about it then maybe I will actually do it!!


PS.  Thank you all so much for the super kind comments you left me in my last post about my grandmother...Considering your interest in her, I might post more about her in the future.

Have fun at the beach house, and that cake looks delicious. I always go for anything with apples when baking for my family!

Your grandma is so smart! And let us know how your baking goes - I'm no good at baking cakes - pies are ok, especially my apple pie - but cakes.... :(

Sounds yummy. My 6 year old loves baking at the moment and we bake every Sat afternoon and then eat it while watching the Six Nations rugby!

I love country style cakes. Would you post your lemon coconut cake recipe?
I have a delicious spiced chocolate banana bread recipe that is to die for. My own little invention.

Oh and your Grandmother is divine! Would love to hear more about her.

How interesting! Years ago and I mean about 20 yrs ago my mom gave me a book called "Cakes and Slices" which was a collection recipes from an Australian weekly with that exact cake on the cover and everytime I think of Australia I think of that cake! I have made it many times and I live in Quebec, Canada a place with many apples! I have 3 apple farms within walking distance from my home! MMMmmmmmmmmmm! OH! and I love her too your grandmother she's just so lovely as you are.
