traditional Dorset Apple Cake

Postby PLUMPUDDING » Fri Sep 29, 2017 4:53 pm

I've made this this afternoon and have had two tasters already and it hasn't cooled off yet! It is delicious and I might try some with cream as it suggests. I think the recipe came from The British Red Cross.

I love Dorset Apple cake - however different they look & taste they are all pretty lush! Think I may still need to do a lot more sampling until I find the perfect one! :)

My husband, who's the keen cook in this household, regularly makes Somerset Apple Cake, which I imagine is probably pretty identical and it always disappears quickly in the various fund raising cake sales he bakes for. It's also delicious with a combination of apples and pears/

It is a lovely moist cake and a good way to reduce the fruit glut. A good idea to use pears too Primrose. It would probably work with a few autumn raspberries as well.
