Serves: 4 

  • 75 g (2¾ oz) plain white flour, sifted
  • 75 g (2¾ oz) caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 300 ml (10 fl oz) skimmed milk
  • 1 tablespoon Calvados or other fruit brandy, optional
  • 450 g (1 lb) cooking apples, peeled, cut into quarters, cored and thickly sliced
  • 50 g (1¾ oz) sultanas or raisins
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, allspice or mixed spice

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C (400°F, gas mark 6).
  2. Place the flour and half the sugar in a bowl, add the eggs and half the milk then blend the ingredients together using a wire whisk or wooden spoon. Alternatively, blend them in a food processor or with a hand-held mixer for 1 minute. Stir in the remaining milk and fruit brandy, if using, and blend to form a smooth batter.
  3. Put the apples and sultanas in the base of a shallow, nonstick 1.5 litre (2 pint 15 fl oz) ovenproof pan or dish. Sprinkle with the spice and all but 1 tablespoon of the remaining sugar, then pour the batter over the top.
  4. Bake for 30-40 minutes until well risen and golden brown. Sprinkle with the remaining sugar and serve hot.
  5. Variation: replace the apples with 450 g (1 lb) of apricots or dessert plums, halved and stoned.
  6. Tip: if you do not have a nonstick pan or dish, use an ordinary one, lightly greased with ¼ teaspoon vegetable oil.
