|225 g||plain flour|
|1 tsp||baking powder|
|110 g||caster sugar|
|110 g||unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces|
|3 large||cooking apples, peeled cored and sliced|
|1 large||egg, beaten|
|milk to mix|
|2 tbsp||sugar, for topping|
Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5, 190ºC, 375ºF.
Grease an 8 inch, 20 cm cake tin.
Sieve the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Roughly mix in the butter – do not rub it in. Add the apple slices and roughly mix together. Mix the egg with a splash of milk and mix into the dry mixture.
The batter should be quite thick and lumpy, but if still dry, add a further splash of milk until moist but still thick.
Spoon the mixture into the tin and level surface as best possible. If any apple pieces protrude, push them down into the batter until just exposed.
Bake for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle the top with sugar. Return to oven and bake for another 30 minutes, or until well risen and golden brown on top. Check with a skewer in centre if done.
Allow to cool for about 10-15 minutes and serve with hot custard or cream. Alternatively, allow to cool on a wire rack and serve in slices well-buttered.
