A moist and extremely tasty cake, with a crunchy coconut topping. Extra delicious with cream or ice cream.
If you dont have a food processor grate the apples by hand and dates would need to be finely chopped before the water and bicarb is added. Cooking time is very hard to determine. This makes 2 large cakes so if the outside browns too quickly reduce the oven temperature slightly and adjust cooking time accordingly. The mixture can be cooked in muffin tins and cooking time reduced. I often make four at once and freeze the others as they take a long time to cook, but preparation time doesn't differ much making 4 (you need a very big bowl though).
