Apple Plate Cake
A little milk
melted for glazing
Ground cloves or cinnamon
- and caster sugar for
Set oven to 425 F or Mark 7. Grease an 8 inch round flan tin. Rub
the butter into the flour in a bowl and stir in the sugar. Peel and
grate two of the apples and add to the flour with the beaten egg. Mix
well together. If the dough is rather firm add a little milk to
soften. Turn the dough on to a floured surface and knead lightly.
Press evenly into the base of the tin. Peel, core and slice the
remaining apples and arrange, neatly overlapping, on top of the
dough. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with a pinch of ground
cloves or cinnamon and a little caster sugar. Bake for 25 to 30
minutes and serve warm.
