    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

    • 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.
