Line an 8 inch cake tin with baking parchment. Preheat oven to 180°c / gas mark 4.

Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

Measure together the wet ingredients then stir into the dry ingredients. It should be the consistency of a smooth thick batter.

Stir in the chopped apples.

Pour into the cake tin and bake for about 30 minutes until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool for 15 minutes in the tin before turning out onto a plate then onto a cooling wire so it cools the right way up ( The sponge could break in half if you leave it to cool upside down).

Warm a little golden syrup and pour over the cake.
