Method Prep:25min › Cook:30min › Ready in:55min
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Grease a 23cm (9 in) baking tin. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon; set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together melted butter, brown sugar and 100g caster sugar with a wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture until just combined, then stir in the apples and walnuts. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pan. In a cup or small bowl, stir together the remaining cinnamon and sugar; sprinkle over the top.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven; finished squares should spring back when lightly touched. Cool in the tin, and cut into squares.
Used different ingredients.
I substitited the walnuts for sultanas & the cinammon for mixed spice. I also used low fat clover instead of butter. Am going to try it next using granulated white & brown sweetner. Will post the outcome. - 31 May 2009
These are really yummy. I have a glut of apples and don't have a problem making them into pre cut pieces for the freezer. Trouble is getting them into the freezer since the family keep nicking them.
Seriously though it's a beautiful recipe definitely a keeper. Thanks very much. - 29 Sep 2013
Oh these are delicious, sweet but delicious. I love the fact they are made from basic store cupboard ingredients. I missed out the walnuts, because I am not fond of them and used a cup of apples, simply because I used the one apple I had left. Very moist and tasty, next time I think I will make a double batch so that I can have thicker bars. - 12 Jan 2013
