This deliciously moist date and apple loaf swaps apples for apple sauce instead to make a super soft sponge. The dates add to the sticky, sweet flavour from the sauce creating a rich flavour with each slice.
Apple crumble tray bake
A sponge base, a sweet apple centre and a buttery crumble topping makes this apple tray bake stand above the rest. Cut into slices and drizzled with warm custard is our favourite way to serve this cake.
Toffee apple cake
If you're a fan of toffee apples, you're going to love this sticky sweet cake made with ready made caramel, tinned apples and a handful of store cupboard ingredients. It only takes 20 mins to prepare meaning you can let the oven do the hard work for you whilst you put your feet up and relax.

The fresh raspberries gives this cake a burst of summer flavour and the apple adds a soft, comforting texture to the cake. And if that's not enough, this cake has a buttery crumble topping too.

Gordon Ramsay's spiced apple cake
This cake is the perfect treat for the weekend and could be served up for dessert after a hearty meal. Gordon Ramsay combines a few different varieties of apple in this recipe including cooking apples and Braeburn. Infused with spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg and glazed with apricot jam, we wonder how long this cake will last once served?
We just love Parkin, this recipe even more so as it's infused with apple. This delicious recipe takes a classic to the next level by bringing oats, orange zest and apple to the mix to make a fruity, moist sponge. Dust with icing sugar and watch it disappear in seconds.
Apple yogurt cake
We think this apple yogurt cake would be the ideal sweet treat for a Saturday or Sunday morning with a warm cuppa. This recipe is great for using up any leftover yogurt or apples that you might have hanging around in the fridge. Serve with a dollop more of yogurt or sprinkle with icing sugar for a pretty finish.
