Right, here goes!


225g butter - softened, and extra for greasing
450g bramley apples
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
225g caster sugar+ extra for dredging
3 large eggs
225g self raising flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
25g ground almonds
1 tablespoon of demerara sugar
200g clotted cream (optional)


-Preheat oven to 180 deg C (GM4). Grease a deep 23-24cm springform cake tin and line with baking paper. Peel and core the apples, cut into 1cm pieces and toss with the lemon juice.


-Cream the butter, sugar and lemon zest until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, adding a little flour with each addition to keep the mixture smooth.


-Sift the remaining flour and baking powder into the bowl and fold in with the ground almonds. Drain the apple pieces well, then stir into the mixture.


-Spoon into the prepared cake tin, lightly level the top and sprinkle with the demerara sugar. Bake in the oven for 1 hour or until well risen, brown and a skewer comes out clean. Cover with foil if too brown after 45mins.


-Leave to cool in the tin for 10mins. REmove from tin and place on serving plate. Dredge with caster sugar and serve with clotted cream.


Enjoy!!
