Heat the oven to 350°. Grease a 7-inch square cake pan and line the base with parchment paper. In a large bowl beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then gradually beat in the eggs. Gently fold in the flour, mixed spice, and nutmeg. Stir in the cider and apple. Spoon into the prepared pan, and bake in the over for 40 - 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Leave to cool slightly, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into squares before serving.
Yield: 1 7-inch cake
