  • 300ml buttermilk
  • 1.5tsp vanilla extract
  • 450g plain flour
  • 5tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 heaped tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 dessert apples
  • 500g unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1kg unrefined icing sugar
  • A balloon stick and holder, long bamboo kebab stick

  1. Grease tins, preheat oven

    Grease and line 3 x 8inch cake tins. Preheat the oven to 150C (fan).

  2. Combine sugar, oil, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract

    In a large bowl beat together the sugar, oil, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla extract until smooth and well incorporated.

  3. Add flour, bicarbonate of soda, and cinnamon

    Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon straight into the bowl and fold in until smooth.

  4. Chop apples and add to mix

    Peel, core and chop the apples into small chunks about 1cm cubed (approx). Stir into the cake mixture.

  5. Bake for 45 minutes

    Share the mixture between the three tins evenly, bake for 45mins or until golden brown on top and a cocktail stick comes out clean, check a couple places in case you hit a piece of apple.

  6. Turn out on to wire rack

    Once baked leave to sit for five mins before removing from the tins and cooling completely on a wire cooling rack.

  7. Make buttercream

    Whilst cooling make the buttercream.

  8. Beat butter

    Cube the butter and put the butter in a large bowl and beat well until it starts to lighten in colour.

  9. Add icing sugar

    Add the icing sugar and stir in gently to incorporate into the butter, add a tablespoon of hot boiled water to help incorporate the sugar.

  10. Beat well

    Once the sugar clouds have subsided beat well to make it smooth. Add another tablespoon of hot boiled water to soften the mixture to make it easier to use.

  11. Decorate
