Use a stick blender or large spoon to mulch together the apple, eggs, oil, sugar and essence
Then sieve together the flour and bicarbonate. To be honest, I know you should sieve flour, but I rarely do. Add the walnuts
Add the flour mix to the apple mix and stir together. Stir it just enough to mix, don't beat it.
Pour the mixture into a greased or lined cake or loaf tin. I usually use a 2lb loaf tin as I like to slice it like a loaf
Bake at 180°C (GM4) for 80 mins until knife comes out clean.
