Apple Sponge Pound Cake

A delicious light and fluffy apple sponge cake that’s quick and easy to make. A definite family favourite in our house.

This cake reminds me of the apple sponge Mum used to cook for us in an oven tray – only because there was so many of us is disappeared in a flash!

Leave the apples chunky so you get a nice hit of apple!
