    Tulip-Fairy's Note:

    I cut this recipe out of an Asda Magazine a long time ago. It's a favourite with the children when they were little they would pick the apples from their Gran's tree. It looks great, very autumnal!

    Serves: 8



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 180°C
    2. 2
      Grease and line the base of a 20cm loose based round cake tin.
    3. 3
      Quarter the apples and cut out the core. Cut quarters into slices and put them into a small bowl with the lemon juice. Toss to mix and set aside.
    4. 4
      Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large mixing bowl.
    5. 5
      Add the butter, sugar, eggs, sultanas and lemon zest. Beat together with a wooden spoon for 3 to 4 minutes until well mixed.
    6. 6
      Put mixture in the cake tin and level the top.
    7. 7
      Drain the juice from the apples and put the slices neatly on the cake. See Photo.
    8. 8
      Bake for about 35 minutes - when you gently press on the top of the cake it should spring back.
    9. 9
      Take out of the oven and leave to cool before removing form the tin.
    10. 10
      I usually double the quantity and cook in a 23" round cake tin (deep). It's enough to feed an army - or a very hungry family at least!
    11. 11
      Alternative toppings use fresh pears or canned, drained pineapple or mandarin oranges.
    12. 12
      This cake is great served with a generous spoon of whipped cream / crème freche.
