Apple Slice

This recipe has been handed down from my Mum and is a firm family favourite. She thrilled my children recently, by making this for dessert....because my children are easily thrilled, simply by the fact that there is dessert! For me, I was taken for a trip down memory lane! You can serve this for a special afternoon tea, or for dessert, served with whipped cream.

Apple Slice

185g butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 tin (400g) pie apple, chopped
2 tablespoons sugar, extra

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Grease and line a slice tin with baking paper (7x11 inches).
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in sifted flour and spices.
  4. Spread half the mixture into prepared pan. Spread the apple over the base and spread with the remainder of the cake mixture (you will need a dinner knife, dipped in hot water to spread the cake mixture as it is quite a stiff dough). Sprinkle the stop with extra sugar, if desired.
  5. Bake for 50 minutes.
