If life throws you apples… make apple cake! Fed up of apple crumble all the time and had a few eggs to spare, so thought I’d try this recipe, adding some cinnamon and mixed spice to give it a little extra oomph. Tastes best just out of the oven, though can be eaten cold and/or heated up in the microwave. Lovely with a bit of double cream.
3 large apples
120g plain flour
120g caster sugar
2 tsp baking powder
120g butter, melted
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp mixed spice
- Peel, core and dice apples.
- Sift the flour, sugar and baking powder together and beat in the eggs.
- Beat in the melted butter, then stir in the apple.
- Butter a cake tin well, pour in the batter and cook in a 180oC oven for around 35mins.
