Apple Dessert Pound Cake

    30 minutes

    I like to use sweet apples when making this instead of cooking apples, because that way I don't have to add as much sugar.

    Serves: 4 

    • 4 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
    • 50g self raising flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 60g butter
    • 60g caster sugar
    • 1 large egg

    Preparation:17min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:3min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Cook the apple slices in a small amount of water over low heat for 10-15 minutes, or until soft.
    2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C . Place the cooked apples in the bottom of an oven proof baking dish. Sieve flour and baking powder together in a bowl.
    3. Beat the butter, sugar and egg together until smooth and creamy. Fold in the flour mixture. Pour on top of the stewed apples and spread evenly.
    4. Bake for 10-15 minutes until well risen, firm and springy when you touch it!
    5. Dust with icing sugar and serve with custard or whipped cream.

    This recipe only makes a small amount of mixture (double might be better?) and the oven timings seem completely wrong (mine was nowhere near cooked even after half an hour). I used the same amount of butter as for sugar and flour. Having said all this, when it was eventually cooked it tasted pretty good!  -  03 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
