- To combine the ingredients, mix together the softened butter and the soft brown sugar in a large bowl until smooth and creamy.
- Add the beaten eggs to the butter and sugar mixture a little at a time. Mix after each addition. Add the milk and jam mixture and mix well.
- Add the flour and baking powder mixture, folding it in with a large spoon, this helps to trap air in the cake. Lastly, fold in the diced apple

- Place the cake in the centre of the preheated oven and bake for about 30/ 35 mins. Stick a skewer in the centre to check it is cooked, it should come out clean if not bake for 10 more mins
