  • Place the flour in a bowl and mix well; rub in the butter until the pieces are the size of small peas. Stir in the cinnamon and nutmeg.

  • Stir in the walnuts, raisins, and apples. Add the grated lime rind, eggs, and pineapple juice. Beat well until thoroughly combined. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top.

  • Bake in preheated oven for about 1 1/4 hours, or until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Turn out and cool on wire rack.

I baked this cake for my diabetic friends as gifts. Although I didn't try it they raved about it and have requested it again. Read More

It did flatten down after cooling but it might be my fault - I made my own flour baking soda baking powder mixture instead of the self-raising flour. I liked the taste though very moist and fruity. I think I might try this as muffins. I really like the idea. Read More

This was delicious! Just the right amount of sweetness even though I left out the raisins. I'm sure it would be good with them in too. For those of you who would like to make it even more healthy I'll let you know that I made it with whole wheat flour instead of white flour and it was still delicious. Drizzling a bit of honey over a slice of this cake makes for a wonderfully guilt-free dessert! Read More

Fruity with the sultanas. Cuts well and holds together well. We both enjoyed it - and the virtuous feeling because of the no sugar! Read More

This was just so-so. Too many raisins and cooks much quicker than listed. Read More
