Tray bake trials: Dutch apple cake

This week I tried out a great new recipe for Dutch apple cake. The recipe came from a fantastic baker and friend, Stevie, who used to make these bite-sized morsels for us when we were teenagers – they were always a big hit!


– 8 oz self raising flour

– 4 oz margarine

– 8 oz caster sugar

– 2 oz sultanas

– 1 egg

– 1/4 pint of milk

– 1 medium cooking apple (peeled and diced)

– Pinch of salt

– Glace icing to decorate


1. Rub together margarine and flour

2. Add the sugar, sultanas and apple

3. Add the egg to the milk and whisk

4. Add egg/milk mixture to the margarine/flour/sugar mixture and mix together well

5. Turn into a 7″ by 11″ lined tin/tray

6. Bake in a preheated over at 180 degrees

7. Turn out and cool

9. Cut into squares or fingers and drizzle with glade icing

The cakes were simple to make and very morish. I can see these being a perfect way to use up apples from the garden at the end of the growing season. SCH
