Chunky apple and marmalade cake : page 186

I also made a half recipe. I loved the chunks of apple in the finished cake. I found it was fully cooked in less time than stated; 25 minutes at 350 fan for my half recipe. Mine was a little on the sweet side since my mincemeat was probably sweeter than marmalade. Froze well.
