  4. After 10mins turn the heat off, add the cinnamon powder, mix together and leave it for 5mins to cool.
  5. In a large bowl sift the plain flour, dextrose, cornflour, salt and baking powder.
  6. In another bowl mix together the remainder of the melted butter, cooled apple mix, eggs, vanilla essence and buttermilk.
