Method

For the apple filling

  • You can use any type of apples you like.
  • Peel the apples and remove the core and seeds.
  • Roughly chop them in to bigger and smaller pieces, so you can have different textures in the cake.
  • Transfer to a bowl and add the cinnamon, cloves, sugar, walnuts and vanilla.
  • Mix and set aside until needed.

For the cake

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350*F) Fan.
  • In a bowl, add the olive oil, orange juice and sugar.
  • Whisk until the sugar has completely dissolved.
  • Add the eggs and whisk to incorporate.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and whisk until all of the ingredients are completely combined.
  • Grease and flour a round 26 cm bundt pan or a cake pan with a whole in the middle.
  • Add 1/3 of the cake batter.
  • Add half of the apple filling over it.
  • The apple mixture may seem like a lot in the pan… but the batter will rise and envelop it while baking.
  • Cover with another 1/3 of the cake batter.
  • Add the remaining apple filling over it.
  • Cover with the final 1/3 of cake batter.
  • Bang the cake pan on a hard surface to help the batter fill in the gaps between the apples and smooth the surface with a spatula.
  • Bake for 60-70 minutes.. on the highest rack in the oven.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow to cool.
  • To serve, dust with icing sugar, cut in to pieces and add 2 mint leaves to each serving!
