A delicious apple cake flavoured with Schwartz Ground Cinnamon and sweetened only with fruit and honey


  • 150g apple sauce
  • 75g coconut oil or butter, melted
  • 70g honey
  • 60g plain yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 275g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Schwartz Ground Cinnamon

To top:

  • 1 small apple, chopped
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp¬†Schwartz Ground Cinnamon


  1. In a large jug mix together the apple sauce, melted coconut oil or butter, honey, yogurt and egg.
  2. In a large bowl add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon and mix.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon just enough to combine everything.
  4. Pour the mixture into a greased and line loaf tin.
  5. In a small bowl toss together the chopped apples, sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle these over the top of the cake.
  6. Bake in the oven at 180c for 30 minutes. Remove and cover the tin loosely with foil (this stops the top from over-browning) and return to the oven for another 20 minutes until cooked through.
  7. Allow to cool a little before removing from the tin by lifting up the sides of the paper.
  8. Allow to cool further on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
