Apple & Honey Cake
100g caster sugar
80g softened, unsalted butter
300g sifted self-raising flour
1 level teaspoon of cinnamon powder
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a 20cm-wide tin with softened butter (I lined my tin with baking paper, much easier to clean up). Dust the greased surface with a little flour.
2. Beat together eggs, caster sugar and honey until the mixture is pale and fluffy.
3. Add butter, and beat in. Add flour, cinnamon, and the flesh of 3 apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1cm pieces. Mix gently, or at a low speed if using a mixer.
4. Spoon the mixture into the cake tin and place in the over for about 45-55 minutes, making sure it is completely cooked in the middle before removing: test with a skewer – it should have no uncooked dough attached to it. Remove from the tin and cool on a cake rack.
Serve with caramelised apple sauce and some cream or ice-cream if desired.
