Easy and scrumptious. A quick but continental style slice you can throw together when friends drop in. Always nice with coffee and a good dollup of double cream. A good friend gave me a recipe very similar to this but I modified it to suit. You can also make it with a gluten free plain flour which is just as successful if you have a gluten free diet.


  • 1 apple, peeled and diced

  • 3/4 cup caster sugar

  • 1 1/2 cup plain flour

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice

  • 1 teaspoon bi-carb

  • 1 pinch of salt

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

  • 1/2 cup sultanas

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 125grams melted dairy free margarine

  • icing sugar for dusting

  • double cream for serving

  • 1 25cm spring form tin

  • extra dairy free margarine for greasing


  • 1.

    Combine diced apple and sugar in bow and allow to sit a few minutes.

  • 2.

    Combine all dry ingredients including walnuts and sultanas in a bowl.

  • 3.

    Stir melted margarine into the apple/sugar mixture.

  • 4.

    Stir egg into apple/sugar mixture.

  • 5.

    Add all dry ingredients to apple mixture and mix well.

  • 6.

    Pour mixture into greased spring form tin and spread evenly.

  • 7.

    Cook for 25 minutes on 180 degrees celcius.

  • 8.

    Leave to cool 10 minutes before cooling on rack.

  • 9.

    Before serving dust with icing sugar and serving with a dollup of double cream.


You can make this in a 25cm square tin if you want a traditional square piece. Cooking time will be the same. This slice is best eaten on the day.
