A nice little cake to have for afternoon tea with some coffee/tea.

Ingredients (serves 8)

  • 190g Margarine
  • 200g Sugar
  • 100g Sunflower seed meal
  • 190g Flour
  • 3/4 tspn Baking powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Apples (peeled, cored and cut into eights)
  • 80g Maple syrup
  • Cinnamon


  1. Mix the margarine and sugar together then add eggs and mix well. Add the flour, baking powder and sunflower seed meal, mix until it's creamy. Fold through maple syrup.
  2. Grease the base and sides of the inner pot of the slow cooker, pour mixture in and smooth the top so it is level. Place the apples on too, pushing them into the mixture. Sprinkle all over with cinnamon.
  3. Press the BAKE button on the Philips All-In-One Cooker, set cooking time for 50 minutes and press start. Close the lid.


You can replace sunflower seed meal with almond meal - I didn't use almond meal due to my boys nut allergy. Hazelnuts or walnuts can be added and pushed into mixture when putting apples in.

  • Great sounding base of the apple slice cake I would love to try this thanks


  • Great recipe thanks


  • It wouldn’t make a difference if you substitute butter for margarine would it?


  • I love apple cake. Thanks for sharing!


  • Mum’s apple tree has loads of fruit – perfect recipe!


  • Can you get sunflower seed meal at Coles or Woolies or do you need to get it at a health food shop?

    • It’s easy to make at home. Simply grind raw (or soaked and dehydrated) sunflower seeds in a food processor, coffee/spice grinder, or high-performance blender such as a Vitamix. Pulse until the sunflower seeds have a flour-like consistency and avoid over-grinding, or you may end up with sunflower seed butter. Periodically sift the flour through a flour sifter or fine-mesh strainer and repeat until all the seeds are finely ground. One cup of sunflower seeds makes about one cup of flour.


  • You had me at maple syrup, it looks so moist and tasty


  • Simply delicious; thanks!.


  • What can you use in this recipe if you do not like maple syrup? I find it a bit strong in flavour.


  • Interesting and love that it can be adjusted to suit your needs.


  • thanks for the recipe. this one is brilliant and i am getting a nice collection happening now


  • I currently have a bag of apples in the fridge, a bit old, need using. Perfect for this cake I think


  • Very nice! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
