This is an incredibly simple and quick recipe that makes an amazing apple cake!
Rind from 1 lemon, plus the lemon juice
5 apples (I used Oratia Beauty, from the orchard down the road)
150 g butter
200 g sugar
250 g self raising flour
Icing sugar to dust (optional)
Peel, core and slice the apples, spray with lemon juice.
Melt the butter and wish with the sugar. Add the eggs, flour and lemon rind, then fold in the apple slices. Pour in a baking tin and bake at 180°C for approximately 45 minutes. Wait 5 minutes then reverse on a serving plate. Dust with icing sugar. Eat!
