Autumn Recipe: Spicy Apple Cake


Apples
Autumn is the perfect time for making use of locally grown apples, which will be in abundance in many Lincolnshire gardens.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium eggs
  • 100gm butter
  • 100gm sugar
  • 100gm flour
  • 3 medium apples
  • 2 level teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 level teaspoon ginger
If you want this cake to be more or less spicy, keep the amounts of cinnamon and ginger in proportion so that there's always 2 parts of cinnamon to 1 of ginger. This prevents the taste of one spice from overwhelming the other.

Method

Spicy Apple Cake
Cream the butter and sugar together. Fold in the eggs and flour as you would with a basic Victoria sponge.

Add the spices to the mix and fold them in as well. Then peel, core and dice the apples and stir them in. Put the whole mixture into a greased cake tin and cook in a preheated oven at 180 degrees (gas mark 4) for 25-30 minutes. Poke a skewer in to check it's done, and if it comes out clean you're good to go. The cake should have a golden brown colour due to the cinnamon. Serve with custard for a warming treat.
