Pink Lady® apple blossom loaf cake

This gorgeous teatime loaf cake created by Juliet Sear is perfect with a cuppa! It’s lovely and sweet with Pink Lady® apples baked into the sponge and topped off with pretty apple blossom and icing to decorate!

Full preparation

  1. In a large bowl rub together the butter and flour until you have a breadcrumb consistency

  2. Add the cinnamon, caster sugar and mix well

  3. Peel and cut the apples into smallish chunks and stir into the dry mix

  4. Gently beat the eggs and vanilla in a small bowl and add to the dry ingredients and mix well

  5. Place the batter into a lined 2lb loaf tin and bake at 170 degrees for 45 mins to an hour until cooked through, risen and golden on the top. Leave to cool on a rack.

  6. To decorate, mix the fondant icing sugar with 1-2 tsp of apple juice and a touch of pink food colouring to a runny consistency, and drizzle over the cake generously allowing the icing to drop over the sides. Adorn the iced loaf with a lovely line of apple blossom.

  7. The loaf cake will keep for 3 days in an airtight tin or box, but it is best eaten as fresh as possible. The apple blossom will begin to degrade after a couple of days.
