After a rainy summer’s day yesterday today the sun shone and the garden needed a bit of tlc. The rogue apple tree was straining under it’s load of fruit and so baking had to commence.
Can’t pretend to know what I am doing but we made a random flapjacky type apple creation and an apple traybake type cake. I can’t even remember what we put in to the flapjack, oats and honey and stuff – total guesswork. But here’s the Apple traybake Cake for the record…
Peel and roughly dice about 500g of apples and mix with lemon juice to stop browning.
Mix the ingredients below butter, caster sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour and baking powder into a large bowl and mix well until smooth.
250g cubed softened butter
280g caster sugar
A dash of vanilla extract
A shake of mixed spice to your liking
350g self-raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
Spread some of the mixture into a prepared traybake tin. Sprinkle half the apples over the top of the mixture, then add another layer or 2 of mix & apples… top with demerara sugar.
Bake for ~50 mins at 160C fan 160c fan.
Cool for 10 mins before you turn out of tin and cut to your liking.
Boom, with ice-cream… Summertime!
