  • Preheat oven to 170* C (338* F) Fan.
  • In a small saucepan, add the raisins and water. Cover and simmer until the raisins soak up all of the liquid. Remove and set aside to cool.
  • In a mixer, beat the olive oil and sugar using the paddle attachment. The mixture does not become light and fluffy so you only have to beat until it is combined and creamy.
  • Add all of the dry ingredients into a bowl. It is always good to sift the dry ingredients before making any cake. Sift the flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, baking soda into a bowl.
  • Add all of the wet ingredients into another bowl. Add the pieces of apples, zest and the raisins, which are even more delicious after their water bath! Mix to combine.
  • Start to add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in 2-3 batches. Gently fold with a spatula until completely combined.
  • Prepare s 10x25 cm baking pan. You can either grease with butter and sift with flour or line both the bottom and sides with parchment paper.
  • Pour the batter into the baking pan and smooth surface with the back of a spoon.
  • Bake for 50 minutes. The oven temperature is a little lower than usual because we don’t want the fruit in the cake to dry out. After 50 minutes, insert a knife into the cake. If it comes out clean it is ready, if it comes out wet bake for a few more minutes.
  • Remove from oven. Allow to cool and cut cake into 2 layers, preferably with a serrated knife.
  • While the cake is baking, you can prepare the frosting. In a mixer, beat the butter, sugar and honey until fluffy. Add the cream cheese and beat until smooth and fluffy.
  • Spread half of the frosting between the 2 layers of cake. Spread the remaining half on top.
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours, cut into slices and serve.
