180-200g fine sugar
180-200g softened butter
180-200g self-raising flour
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 braeburn apple, roughly chopped
1 baking tin with removable base (see far left in the photo)
1 electric mixer
1 set of scales
1 large bowl
Turn on the oven to 180°C. Cut up your butter and put it into a bowl, then put the sugar in and mix it up. Crack the eggs, and give it a go with the mixer.
Add the flour, and carry on mixing it. It will quite quickly turn into a cement-like consistency. Then add the pieces of apple, and mix them nicely in so they are in all parts of the mixture.
Take your cake mould and grease the inside, then pour in the mix, and spread it out to make a roughly flat surface.
Put it into the oven for between 30 and 45 minutes. You will know when it is ready because a knife inserted into the top will come out clean.
Don't peel the apple - the outer layer gives the cake a tangy flavour. Serve with whipped cream and a cup of tea.
