Easy go to cake recipe
In the past I've usually made Lumberjack Cake, simple and tastes great. 2 apples cored and diced, 1 cup chopped dates. Pour over 1 cup hot water, let it rest and cool. Cream 125g butter to 1 cup caster sugar add 1 egg, then add 11/2 cups plain flour and 2 tsp baking powder. Combine fruit mixture to flour mixture, put in a greased springform cake tin. Bake for 1hr on 180 degrees Celsius. There is also a topping you can make with consists of milk, brown sugar, butter and shredded coconut and tip it on top about 10 mins before finished baking. I don't usually do the topping bit.
So I've come to changing up the recipe to suits my needs, used gluten free flour (1/2 coconut, 1/2 tapioca) replaced the sugar with 1/2 cup of honey, added walnuts or pecans. Added cooked rhubarb and substituted pears for apples, prunes for dates. Grated in fresh ginger etc. Added greek yoghurt or a splash of Olive oil and everytime its worked out. Mt go to cake recipe. You can make this with a hand whisk and wooden spoon.
