For the Cake

  • 3 cups/4 medium apples
  • 300g/1 ¼ cups sugar Demerara/Turbinado or white sugar
  • 125ml/1/2cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs large
  • 350g/3 cups flour all purpose
  • 2 tsp baking soda-
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp mixed spice or pumpkin spice
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla

For the Streusel Topping

  • 5 ½ tbsp flour-
  • 5 tbsp sugar Demerara/Turbinado or brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp mixed spice or pumpkin spice
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 3 tbsp butter slightly softened
  • 4 tbsp walnuts chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp salted caramel I used Marks and Spencer brand


  • Preheat oven to 350F/180C
  • Grease a 9 inch square pan. (See the text above for cake pan options) Shred the apples with skin on and mix together with sugar, oil and eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the remaining ingredients (cake ingredients only). Pour the batter into your pan and smooth the top.
  • Mix together the streusel ingredients in a small bowl with a fork or use your hands. The streusel won't be crumbly but will have the consistency of a cookie dough. Pinch off small bits and cover the surface of the cake.
  • Bake for 60-70 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 30 minutes, then remove it from the pan and let it cook completely on a wire rack. Drizzle with pre-made salted caramel. (If you caramel sauce is a bit stiff put it in the microwave for 30 seconds, that should help to get it runny and only use a good quality brand you trust.)
