Ingredients

Stewed Apple

  • 2-3 Large Bramley Apples
  • Caster Sugar to taste
  • Cinammon to taste
  • A splash of water

Cake Mix

  • 2-3 Large Bramley Apples
  • Caster Sugar to taste
  • Cinammon to taste
  • A splash of water
  • 8oz (225g) Caster Sugar
  • 8oz (225g) Soft Margarine
  • 8-10oz (225-285g) Stewed Apple
  • 8oz (225g) Self-Raising Flour
  • 4-6oz (115-225g) Sultanas
  • 2 large/3 small Eggs
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1tsp Ground Cinammon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cloves

Method

  • STEP 1
    First make the stewed apple. Peel, core and chop the apple into chunks and add into a large pan with the sugar, cinammon and splash of water. Heat on high until a smooth paste is formed - don't worry about a few lumps. Leave to cool in a bowl of cold water/in the fridge.
  • STEP 2
    Preheat the oven to 150C fan (170C conventional) and grease a medium sized cake tin.
  • STEP 3
    Cream the margarine and sugar together in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
  • STEP 4
    Add the rest of the ingredients, including the cooled stewed apple - if it's too hot then the mixture, eggs in particular, will begin to cook.
  • STEP 5
    Mix until fully combined and pour into the prepared cake tin. Place in the oven and leave for 35-45mins. It won't rise too much, but is ready when a skewer comes out clean.
  • STEP 6
    Leave to cool before removing from the tin - it is a delicate cake that will fall apart if not left for long enough.
