apple pudding loaf

350g peeled and cored apples

100g sugar

100g butter

1 egg

225g SR flour

2 tsp mixed spice

3 tbsp milk

3 tsp demerara sugar

Grate the apples and set aside. Beat the sugar and butter together, then beat in the egg. Fold in the flour and spice, and the milk. The mixture will seem quite dry. Fold in the grated apple, and spoon the mixture into a 2 lb loaf tin. Sprinkle with the demerara sugar.

Cook at 190 Cat the top of the oven for about an hour, or 160 for 11/2 hours, or until done. (really, it's a pretty relaxed recipe!) The top should look golden brown, and although the cake will still look a little moist (due to the apples) it should spring back when pressed.

Serve cold.
