Yet another apple recipe! Am making the most of the Bramleys before we leave.
This is a nice easy recipe that you can make in a few minutes, if you need a cake in a hurry. It's another one from Mum's old handwritten book.
4oz/125g sr flour and 4oz/125g sr wholemeal flour
1 tspn baking powder
2oz/60g soft brown or demerara sugar
11/2 oz/45g diced butter or margarine
1 tspn cinnamon
1 medium Bramley apple [about 10oz/300g before peeling] peeled, cored and chopped
3-4 tbspn milk
extra demerara sugar for the top
Preheat oven 200C/gas6/400F
Grease a baking sheet.
Sift the flours into a bowl and rub in the fat.
Stir in the sugar and cinnamon and then add the chopped apple. You can, if you like, grate the apple, but I prefer it in chunks.
Mix it all together then stir in enough milk to make a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured board and shape into a 7"/ about 18cm round.
Mark it into 8 and then sprinkle the top with denerara sugar.
Bake it for about 25-30 mins.
