Apple and Walnut cakes

For the last in the apple series, we’ve saved the best till last. These Apple and Walnut cakes sound divine and we’re betting the whole family will love these.

Ingredients:
250g essential Waitrose Self-raising Flour
100g butter, at room temperature, diced
Pack of 4 Best of British Apples, coarsely grated
75g walnuts, coarsely chopped
125g light brown muscovado sugar
1 large Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Egg
½ tsp Cooks’ Homebaking Vanilla Extract
100ml essential Waitrose semi-skimmed milk
100g essential Waitrose soft cheese
100g icing sugar, sifted
½ tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp Cooks’ Homebaking Crystallised Sprinkling Stem Ginger

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC, gas mark 5. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases. Place the flour in a large bowl then, using your fingertips, rub 50g of the butter into the flour until it’s well blended. Stir in the grated apples, walnuts and brown sugar.
  2.  Beat together the egg, vanilla and milk then stir into the apple mixture. Divide between the paper cases and bake for 20–25 minutes until firm and golden. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
  3. Beat together the remaining butter and soft cheese until smooth, then mix in the icing sugar and cinnamon. Spoon over the top of the cooled cakes and sprinkle with crystallised ginger.
