Gunby Apple Cake

The cake made to the Show recipe last year was a Chocolate Beetroot Cake; it was very popular so the committee decided to leave that class in for 2017 but in addition we added another ‘Show recipe’, an Apple Cake.   Gunby Apple Cake, is a Lincolnshire recipe; it has been tried and tested and it is delicious so why not try it.  The recipe is below: 

240g (8oz) self-raising flour
240g (8oz) butter or margarine
240g (8oz) light brown sugar
3 large eggs
125g (4oz) mixed nuts
125g (4oz) sultanas
2 level teaspoons of baking powder
1 level teaspoon of cinnamon
400g (14oz) cooking apples (grated)
Brown muscovado sugar for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 160˚C and line a deep 23cm (9 inch) tin.
Beat all the ingredients together except for the apples and 25g (1oz) of the mixed nuts.
Spoon half of the mixture into the lined tin.
Spread the grated apple over the mixture then add the rest of the mixture on top.
Sprinkle generously with brown muscovado sugar and the remaining nuts.
Bake in the oven for 1 ¼ hours until golden.
Cool slightly in the tin and then turn out onto a wire rack.
