Mix and bake coconut, oat and apple slice // for ANZAC Day

Super quick and easy cake that's made in one bowl and tastes delicious with apples, pears, or peaches. We used Pink Lady™ apples. Just a note, the oil is listed in grams, it is not a typo. Dessicated coconut works fine also, but you may want to add 3 extra tablespoons of milk.

For the slice:

  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut flakes
  • 1 cup unrefined sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 125 g olive or macadamia oil (yes grams!), plus extra for greasing
  • 2 Pink Lady™ apples, 1 of them peeled


To prep the apples:

  • Cut apples into quarters, remove core.
  • Cut each quarter into 3 slices, longways.

To make the cake:

  • Mix flour, baking powder, oats, coconut and sugar in a large bowl. In a measuring jug, whisk together the eggs, milk and oil.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well with a wooden spoon.
  • Grease a small slice tin with extra oil.
  • Pour the batter into the tin. Arrange apple slices on top of the slice, alternating between peeled and unpeeled pieces.

To bake:

  • Bake in a preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the cake has turned golden brown and a skewer insterted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Cool on a wire rack slightly before serving.
