Golden Apple Cinnamon cake
Apples are high in fibre, they contain both soluble and insoluble fibre which is great for your digestive system. The soluble fibre is known as pectin and the beauty of this fibre is that it has the power to help lower cholesterol and stabilise blood sugar. What I love about this cake is that it’s packed with apples, allowing the natural sweetness to shine through. This apple cake is delicious just simply served with a cup of tea or served warm out of the oven. The beautiful golden colour on the cake is because of sugar caramel. It adds great texture to the cake with amazing taste. It looks so beautiful and i am so in love with the pictures of Apple cake.
