Preheat the oven to 200C and grease and line a loaf tin.
Sift your flour into a bowl with the cinnamon and ginger. In another bowl, mix the molasses, sugar, eggs and oil until well combined.
Combine the wet and dry mixtures then fold in the apples.
Pour batter into the loaf tin, smooth over the top and bake for 45 minutes or until the cake feels firm to touch and is beginning to pull away from the tin’s sides.
