Mum's Apple Cake

For Julie who commented on the previous post.

Mum's Apple Cake

12 oz Self Raising flour
6 oz butter (soften in the microwave)
6 oz sugar (I used brown)
3 eggs
a little glug of milk
2 baking apples cut into chunks

Whizz up the above and spoon out into 2 lined small loaf tins. Bake in a moderate oven until done - approx. 30 - 35 mins

Here are 2 other variations from my here, there and everywhere recipe book. Enlarge the picture for this one which was cut out from somewhere.

Easy Apple Cake

This one must have been cadged from a friend. I'll type it out 'neatly' under the picture.

Dorset Apple Cake

450g apples
the juice of 1/2 a lemon for the apples
225g butter
280g Golden Caster Sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
350g SR flour
2 tsp baking powder
Demerara sugar to sprinkle

Turn on the oven to 180 degrees.
Line a 27cm x 20cm baking tin.
Put butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour and baking powder in a bowl and mix. 
Put half in the tin.
Put in apples and then the rest.
Sprinkle sugar over the top.

I presume it's baked until it's done!

  2. I'll have to try the first of these, as it sounds suitably simple enough for even me to attempt.

  3. Ooh Mum, I just decided to make apple pie and look what you've done. I may have to make Apple Cake ready for tomorrow.

  4. Apple cake is lovely, must try yours.

  5. PS I made 2 cakes and a pie.
