Looking for a Lumberjack cake recipe? What even is a lumberjack cake? It’s an old-fashioned squidgy apple and date cake with a caramelised coconut topping. When baked, the cake part is a sticky marriage of apple pieces and dates. It’s almost like a pudding so don’t be expecting your typical fluffy cake crumb here. My favourite part is the caramelised topping of brown sugar, butter and coconut. When baked it turns into a sweet chewy layer of awesome, helping to break up the squishy texture of the cake part. It’s a pretty sweet cake, so have a cup of tea on standby.
