Apple Walnut Orange Cake Recipe

Moist, flavourful, soft and healthy, this will soon become a family favourite. Whole wheat {aata} and walnut meal take the place of plain flour, while honey is the healthy sweetener. To double up as dessert, serve the cake with a pourable warm custard on the side, or frost it with lightly sweetened low fat cream or mascarpone. Walnut praline and crisp apple chips would complete the dessert!
