• 2 Bramley Apples (peeled and chopped)
  • 3oz Butter (softened or room temp)
  • 6oz Caster sugar
  • 8oz self raising flour
  • 2tbsp milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • Demera sugar for the topping
  • 2tsp lemon juice


  • STEP 1
    Line your tin with baking paper and preheat the oven to 160 degrees (fan)
  • STEP 2
    Peel and slice your apples, adding the lemon juice, milk and the optional cinnamon and set to one side. Make sure the apples are stirred in well with the lemon juice to stop them browning.
  • STEP 3
    Cream together the butter and sugar until it looks light and fluffy
  • STEP 4
    Stir in the apple mixture making sure its all evenly stirred in
  • STEP 5
    Using a wooden spoon, fold in your flour carefully. Make sure not to knock too much air out, it make take more time but you want a nice light cake
  • STEP 6
    Spoon the mixture into your tin, making sure its all level
  • STEP 7
    Bake at 160, for about 50mins, or until a skewer in the middle of the cake comes out clean. If you get worried about the top drying out cover it in foil. This shouldn't happen but it's always good to be prepared!
  • STEP 8
    You can serve it hot for pudding, in which case sprinkle the demera sugar immediately, or wait for it to cool down. Again its personal. I hope you get a nice moist apple cake :)
