Stewed apple and pear cake

I have made this cake with apples, apples and pears and you could probably make with just pears.

It is a very moist cake – even puddingy, which is delicious straight from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some custard.


260g Self-raising flour
180g Soft brown sugar
2tsp Baking powder
2tbsp Cinnamon
2 Eggs
150g Soft butter
500g (approx) stewed apple/pear


Peal the fruit and stew until soft – stew for less time if you would like chunks of fruit intact in your cake. Allow to cool.

Add all ingredients to your bowl/mixer and blend until smooth, add the fruit and combine until smooth (unless you would like your cake with a few chunks of fruit intact – though this is not necessary and blending it completely makes a deliciously moist cake).

Add mixture to a lined spring-form tin and bake at 150C (fan) for approximately 40 minutes.
