Dorset Apple Cake

Dorset Apple Cake

A yummy cake that puts an abundance of apples to good use!

225g plain flour

1-2 teaspoons of baking powder

1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

pinch salt

110g butter, cut into small pieces

110g caster sugar

225g of peeled and diced apples

1 egg, beaten with 2 tablespoons of milk


1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4

2. Grease and line a square cake tin (I used a 20cm by 20cm square cake tin)

3. Sift the flour, baking powder and spice into a bowl, add the pinch of salt

4. Rub the butter into the flour mixture,

5. Stir in the sugar and the diced apples. Then add the egg and milk. Mix in to form a firm dough.

6. Fill the cake tin – the mixture will be quite shallow in the tin.

7. Bake for up to an hour – my cake was ready in 45 minutes,

8. Leave to cool in the tin.
