Apple Plate Cake (Scottish)

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 4
Categories: Cakes / Desserts

8  oz  SR flour
4  oz  Butter
2  oz  Caster sugar
4    Cooking apples
1    Egg, beaten
    Little milk
    Melted butter for glazing
    Ground cloves or cinnamon
    Caster sugar for dusting

Set oven to 425F 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 25-30 minutes and serve warm. From the booklet Scottish Teatime Recipes
