I dont know if this is the one you were after, mine is a reprint from 1964 so really old.

1 breakfast cup brown sugar ( i think its 150g), 1 1/2 C flour, 1 tsp mixed spice, 1/2 C raisins, 2 well beaten eggs, 1/2 C butter, 1 tsp B.Soda, 1 C thinly sliced apples, 1/2 C walnuts.
Cream butter and Sugar, add well beaten eggs, then flour sifted with B.Soda and spices.Into this stir raisins and nuts. Place half this mixture in prepared tin, then sliced apples, sprinkled with Tbl sugar and pinch of cinnamon. Next add the remaining mixture. Put in good oven about 1hr ( wouldn't have a clue what they mean by good oven). When nearly cooked sprinkle top of cake with 1 Tbl of brown sugar a little cinnamon and nutmeg.
Put greases paper on top so sugar wont burn. Take off just before taking cake from oven. Keen 2 or 3 days before cutting. If preferred, fruit and nuts may be omitted.
