This is my mothers apple cake recipe that my sister revived and forwarded to me. Mum gave my sister her old old Kenwood a few years ago as she had got too old to bake this I might add is still in excellent working order - how good is that!

Method

  1. Cream the sugar and butter together.
  2. When light and fluffy add the eggs (whisked) gradually.
  3. When the eggs have been incorporated add the flour and baking powder a tablespoonful at a time.
  4. Spread two thirds of the mixture into a prepared tin (in my case I used an 8 inch round loose bottomed cake tin that is approximately 4 inches deep which I buttered and placed a disk of baking parchment on the bottom. However, this cake is not very deep so a variation of what I used would be just as good). 5
  5. Peel and slice apples - place these on the cake mixture evenly and sprinkle with the granulated sugar.
  6. Heat jam and dot over the apples.
  7. Then drop the remaining mixture by teaspoons all over the apples.
