DIRECTIONS

  • Line a large cake tin with baking paper, and pre heat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder, mixed spice and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Gradually add eggs, beating mix after each addition. The mixture may separate at this point, this is natural so either ignore it (as i do) or add a tablespoon of the flour mix to 'settle' it down.
  • Carefully fold in dry ingredients, alternating with apple.
  • Add milk if necessary to get a thick creamy texture.
  • Turn cake into the tin, and top with apple slices (i like to make this into a nice pattern).
  • Combine cinnamon and sugar, and sprinkle over apple slices.
  • Bake for one hour, or until cake springs back to the touch.
  • I find this cake doubles well, although you need to be careful of cooking time. It also freezes well.
