Apple and Walnut Cake

Rounding out the week with a bit of baking from that old reliable, How To Be A Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson.

It’s a bit of an unusual recipe, using walnut oil for the fat (although you can use olive oil) and then the resulting cake batter is very thick – and that’s before you add the diced apple, chopped walnuts and rum soaked sultanas. It takes quite a long time in the oven too – a whole hour.

The final cake is very nice, but I’m a bit concerned it could dry out as the week progresses. Fortunately we have ice cream in the freezer as an emergency “moist maker”.
