As more autumnal weather moves in, so does a glut of windfall apples. This simple apple cake is moist and delicious, and a great way of using up some up!
- Around 220g Bramley apples (or another fairly tart variety)
- 220g self-raising flour
- 110g butter
- 110g soft brown sugar
- 100g sultanas
- 2 eggs
- 100ml milk
- 2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 160°C (fan). Peel, core and chop the apples in to bite sized pieces.
- Put the flour, cinnamon and butter into a food processor and blitz until you have a breadcrumb consistency.
- Add the sugar, egg and milk, and blitz again. The mixture should be thick but pourable.
- Pour the mixture in to a bowl and stir in the apples and sultanas.
- Line a 20cm cake tin and pour the mixture in. Sprinkle on a little demerara sugar if you want a crunchy topping!
- Bake for around 30 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
- Leave to cool or enjoy while still just warm with a large helping of clotted cream!
