  • Preheat oven to 170° C. Line a 7 inch round baking tin with parchment paper.
  • Place the whole wheat flour, walnuts and crystallised ginger in bowl of food processor. In short pulses, grind to a fine meal. (Do not over process or else the nuts will release oil)
  • Add the baking powder and salt, process briefly to mix. Reserve in a bowl.
  • In a large bowl, beat eggs and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add vanilla extract and beat again.
  • Beat in the honey briefly, followed by the orange zest, Milk and Sunsolite oil.
  • Gently fold in the reserved dry mix, and then the grated apple and chopped walnuts (50gm) until the mixture is uniformly moistened.  Don’t overmix.
  • Transfer batter into prepared tin, and bake for about 1 – 1/4 hours until a tester comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool in tin, then gently turn out onto rack to cool.
