Servings 5


  • 250 gm plain flour
  • 175 gm unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 50 gm unsalted butter chilled
  • 3 apple peeled, cored and chopped
  • 120 ml milk
  • 110 gm brown sugar dark brown
  • 100 gm baking sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 egg
  • 60 gm walnuts chopped
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp spice mixed
  • 1 tsp cloves ground
  • 1 tbsp ginger ground
  • 1 pinch Salt


  • Melt the 50 g of butter into a saucepan and fry the apples until golden and tender. Set these to one side for now.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4. Line and grease the insides of two 23cm round cake tins.
  • Using an electric mixer if you have one, or a hand blender, whiz up the 175g butter, honey, dark brown sugar, and caster sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time until blended.
  • Sieve the flour, bicarb, spices, and salt together. Mix the sugar mixture into the dry mixture a little at a time, alternating with the milk, until everything is smooth and fully combined.
  • Stir the walnuts in, along with the apples until everything is mixed. Divide this between the two cake tins and spread evenly.
  • Cook these cakes for around half an hour or until firm. Leave the Best Korean rice cooker on for your candied walnuts. Cool the cakes on a wire rack.


  • This recipe takes a little while longer than some other gingerbread recipes, but the icing on the cake makes it into the perfect dessert to serve at a family Christmas party.
