Such a simple cake to make in the form of a tray bake, delicious eaten cold or warm with custard
Add the sliced apples to a large bowl and to this add the 4tbsp sugar (if using Bramleys), cinnamon and lemon juice and zest. get your hands in there and toss the slices until they're covered in the mixture.
Add the flour and beat to combine into a thick silky cake batter.
Pour half the cake batter into the prepared square baking tin, then using half the apples add a layer to cover the mixture.
Bake in oven on 170C/150C Fan for 40 mins
Because this is made with apple it will keep moist for longer but if you like your cake crusty around the edges eat asap ... as if we let this cake last more than 3hrs in this house!!!
