Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 8

A little butter for greasing
the tin
250 Gram(s) Braeburn Apples, 9oz
125 Waitrose French Cider, 4fl
70 Gram(s) Unsalted butter, 2 1/2oz
175 Gram(s) Dark muscovado sugar, 6oz
2 Waitrose Free Range Eggs
small beaten
200 Gram(s) Waitrose Organic Self
Raising Flour sifted
5 Gram(s) Mixed spice, 1/8 oz
5 Gram(s) Cinnamon, 1/8 oz
1 Braeburn Apple, thinly
50 Gram(s) Apricot jam, 1 1/2 oz
Grease and line an 18cm (7") round cake tin with baking parchment.
Peel, core and dice the apples into 5mm ( 1/4") cubes. Cook over a low
heat with the cider until slightly soft and the cider has been
absorbed. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, then
gradually add the eggs. Fold in the flour, mixed spice and cinnamon
followed by the softened apples. Put the mixture into the prepared
tin and arrange the thinly sliced apples in a spiral over the top of
the cake. Bake in a preheated oven at 170øC, 325øF, gas mark 3, for
approximately 1 hour. If the apples brown too quickly, cover the tin
loosely with foil and continue to cook until a skewer, inserted into
the centre of the cake, comes out clean. Leave the cake to cool in
the tin for fifteen minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. When the
cake has cooled brush the whole cake with hot apricot jam. Variation
Make a thin icing by mixing some of the remaining cider with 25g (1oz)
of icing sugar and brush over the cake, on top of the cooled apricot
jam. Converted by MC_Buster. NOTES : A delicious homemade cake to
serve for tea or as a dessert, with cream or custard. Enjoy it with
tea or a glass of chilled cider. Converted by MM_Buster v2.0l.
