Lizzie's apple cake

Topsham, Devon January 21, 2009 -- We enjoyed this delicious apple cake outdoors on a cold winter's night, under the apple trees, washed down with Alastair's mulled cider during this year's Topsham Wassail. Here's Lizzie's recipe.

175g plain flour
50g whole wheat flour
1.5 tsp bicarb
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp mixed spice
100g raw brown sugar
100g butter/margarine
300g cooking/eating apples
1 free range egg (beaten)

Grease and line the base of a 7.5" or 19cm square cake tin. In a basin combine the flour, salt, cinnamon, mixed spice and sugar. Rub in the butter/margarine until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Wash, core and roughly chop the apples then add the apples and beaten egg to the mixture and stir quickly to combine. Spread evenly in the tin and bake in the oven at 190 DegC (375 Deg F, Gas Mark 5) for about half an hour until risen and firm to the touch. Allow to cool in the tin before cutting into squares. Serves about 6. Enjoy with mulled cider.
