Spiced apple and pecan loaf, spiced with ginger and cinnamon
Spiced apple and pecan loaf. I love loaf cakes, I think they are one of the most underrated types of cake. They are so versatile and most importantly easy to eat and transport. They are perfect for an on the go breakfast, a mid-morning treat or even something to make the lunchbox more exciting.
This loaf cake is spiced with ginger and cinnamon and has a sweet, tart apple and crunchy nuggets of pecans running through.
Nature really had a hand in this cake recipe. The UK was recently battered by a storm and the winds broke off a lot of branches from my parent’s apple tree and blew off most of the apples so we found ourselves overwhelmed with an entire tree full of apples. After we made enough apple sauce for the rest of the year and baked an apple pie for everyone we knew we were still left with what felt like hundreds of apples. So if anyone has any more apple recipe suggestions they would be most welcome.
