LAMMAS (AUGUST) – DORSET APPLE CAKE RECIPE

One of the best recipes I’ve found for apples.

INGREDIENTS

225g butter
450g apples
1 lemon
225g caster sugar
3 eggs
225g self-raising flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
25g ground almonds
1 tablespoon brown sugar

METHOD

Preheat oven to 180degsC or gas 4. Grease and line a springform cake-tin, and line with baking paper.

Cut and core the apples into pieces (some say peel as well, but there’s really no need, not unless you’re a self-righteous masochist who enjoys making work for yourself), and toss with the juice of the lemon.

Using an electric hand-whisk, cream together the butter, sugar and zest of the lemon.

Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, alternating with a spoonful of the flour.

Sift in the remaining flour and baking powder, and fold in with the ground almonds.

Drain the apple pieces, and fold into the mixture.

Scoop into the prepared tin, level the top, and sprinkle with the brown sugar.

If you have a fast oven, like me, you may want to put some aluminium foil over the top of the tin to stop the cake burning.

Bake in the oven for 1 hour. Insert a skewer at end of that time, if it comes out clean then the cake is done.

Set aside to cool for a while, and then turn out onto a wire rack.

Done.
