Recipe of the Month
Almond and Apple Cake
225g castor sugar
4 large free range eggs
335g self-raising Flour
2 eating apples
110g icing sugar
28g flaked almonds
Put butter and sugar into a large mixing bowl, whisk until light and fluffy. Add two eggs one at a time with a little flower, continue lightly mixing, add the remainder of the flour with two teaspoons of almond essence, also peel, core and chop the apples adding to the mixture, mix well and put into a lined 8” baking tin Bake for 45minutes until golden brown and firm to the touch. You may also test by inserting a knife into the centre of the cake, if the knife comes out clean then the cake is baked, if not, then return to the oven for a further 5 minutes.
Mix the icing sugar with two teaspoons of Almond essence and a little warm water. Spread the icing on the cake whilst still warm, then sprinkle the flaked almonds on top. Allow to cool a little and enjoy Yummy!!
