Apple Cake

Talking about Donnybrook and apples reminds me of a good recipe I have:

Torta con le mele (= cake with the apples)

3oz butter: softened, plus extra for greasing
11oz self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
3 eggs
5oz caster sugar
3 apples: peeled, cored, and chopped

1. Preheat oven to 180C.
2. Grease a cake tin with butter and dust lightly with flour.
3. Whisk eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat in the butter.
4. Sift the flour into the mixture.
5. Add the apples and mix gently.
6. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake until cooked (about 30-40mins).
7. Remove from the oven and leave to cool before turning it out.

For fancier cake: serve with whipped cream or Mix Berry Coulis. Or with both.
