3 small apples.
1 tablespoon lemon juice.
100g sugar (I used caster).
Handful of sultanas.
180g self-raising flour or 180g plain flour and 1 heaped tsp of baking powder.
1 level tsp baking powder.
Pinch of cinnamon.
Preheat oven to Gas 4/180C or 350F. Grease a 2lb loaf tin and line with greaseproof paper.
Peel, core and slice the apples thinly. Put in a bowl and sprinkle over the lemon juice.
Cream butter and sugar together. Add the eggs, apples sultanas and mix. Add flour, baking powder and cinnamon and mix. Pour the mixture into the tin. Bake for 45 mins until golden. Insert a knife into the middle of the cake, if it comes out clean, it’s ready. Allow to cool before turning out.
Serve with Creme Fraiche, custard, ice-cream or cream.

When you have a zillion apples, you need to use some of them up, so I found this recipe in A Girl called Jack by Jack Monroe. It was delicious, very light and even more scrummy with a dollop of Creme Fraiche on top.
