Apple Cake

This was another recipe we made to use up some of our lovely home-grown apples! It was perfectly moist and the apples became sort of caremelized. Thoroughly recommended! The serving size for 340 cals is pretty large; you could have half of it and easily still feel like you'd had a treat.


Apple Cake
Serves: 8 (fairly big slices)

Cake:
100 g margarine
170 g sugar
1 egg
2 tsp baking powder
240 g flour
150 ml milk
Topping:
3 apples
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tbsp cinnamon

Pre-heat the oven to 175 degrees. Grease and flour a ~20cm cake tin.
Mix together the margarine and sugar until smooth.
Add the egg and whisk well.
Add the baking powder and flower and mix together until integrated. Don't worry that it looks crumbly.
Add the milk and stir just until the mixture is smooth.
Prepare the apple, coring and peeling them and cutting them into thin slices.
Toss the slices in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Pour a small amount of micture into the bottom so that it covers the base and scatter a few of the slices over then pour on the rest of the cake mixture.
Arrange the remaining apple slices decoratively around the cake.
Bake in the bottom of the oven for approximately 45 minutes.
