  • This looks like my kind of cake as it doesn’t seem l like it would be overly sweet and I do really love the flavour of cinnamon. All the ingredients are pretty much what I would have in the cupboard and fridge to, without having to buy extras at the shops.

  • This looks very moist. I think I’d add some apples or berries to it when I try. I’ll let you all know how it goes

  • A lady I worked with used to put apple on the top just before putting it in the oven. If you put apple on it too soon it may go to the bottom of the cake.
