Apple and Sultana Cake - a light healthier cake with fresh apples, sultanas and a hint of spices.
Yummy Apple Sultana Cake
A perfect cake to make and enjoy when you have some apples that need to be used up. A slice of this is perfect with a cuppa as an afternoon treat.
You can even serve it with a little light cream or custard for a more decadent treat - yum!!!
Substitutes for Sultanas in Cake
Don't like sultanas? Sub for some chocolate chips, just don't forget to recalculate the values if you do.
I like semi-sweet or even dark chocolate chips best in this cake as they compliment the apple.
What size cake tin for the Apple and Sultana Cake?
I used a 7-inch springform cake tin to bake this cake. A 7 inch is just the right size, you don't really want one any wider or your cake will not get the right height, a 6 inch would possibly work too.
I haven't tested it as muffins, but if you want to give it a go, then make sure you reduce the cooking time, as muffin-sized cakes will take a lot less time to cook that a bigger cake.
Can I use another type of sweetener?
You will notice in this recipe I use a sweetener called Sukrin Gold - it's a brown sugar Erythritol based sweetener that you use like for like in measurement to sugar. It also doesn't have that horrible after taste that you get with certain sweeteners.
If you can't get sukrin gold, then I recommend using another Erythritol type sweetener, as this cake hasn't been tested with other sweeteners.
Other types of sweetener, are not used like for like for sugar, so you can't use them in the same measurements as I have here. However, if you do decide to give it a try with another type of sweetener, you need to look at the packaging and see what the sugar/sweetener ratio is for that brand, so you know how to adjust.

- 1 small apple, peeled chopped (stewed without sugar)
- 100g of plain (all purpose) flour
- 5 tbs of sukrin gold (or use another Erythritol based sweetener)
- 1.5 tsp of baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- 20g of sultanas
- 3 eggs
- 1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 6 tbs of fat free plain yoghurt
- cooking oil spray
- Icing sugar, to dust (optional)
- Preheat oven to 180c or 350f
- Grease a large round sponge cake tin with coconut oil spray
- Stew apple in a little water for a few mins, you want it to still have a slight bite to it and not be a puree, chop finely and set aside in a bowl to cool.
- Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt into a large mixing bowl.
- Separate the yolks from the egg. Then add the vanilla extract to the egg yolks, along with the sukrin, and yoghurt. Whisk until you have a smooth paste.
- Add this into the flour mix and combine until smooth.
- In another bowl whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Then carefully fold this into the rest of the cake mixture, until ingredients are combined (be careful not to over mix).
- Fold in the apple and sultanas.
- Add to the oven and bake for approx 45 mins (a skewer entered into the centre should come out clean)
- When the cake is ready, remove from oven and allow to cool completely in the cake tin. Remove carefully from tin, slice into 6 equal size slices and it is ready to serve.
