Apple and Ginger Cake

Serves: 6-12


2 cups wholemeal self-rising (raising) flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 ounces (55 g) sultanas
2 eggs
1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice concentrate
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup canola oil
2 medium green apples, cored and grated
4 ounces (125 g) preserved ginger, chopped
Passion Fruit Icing:
4 ounces (120 g) icing sugar mixture
1 small passion fruit

Microwave Method:

1. Mix the dry ingredients and sultanas. Whisk together the eggs, juice, honey and oil, then stir in the ginger and apple. Fold in the dry ingredients and pour into a greased ring pan. Microwave on HIGH for 8-10 minutes before turning out. Drizzle microwave icing over, if desired.
2. To make the passion fruit icing: Scoop the flesh from the passion fruit and mix to a thick paste with the icing sugar mixture. Microwave 20-30 seconds until liquid. While still hot, drizzle off a spoon over the cooled cake.
