200g soft butter
110g castor sugar
2 eggs
225g sifted self-raising flour
2 small, unpeeled green apples; cored and thinly sliced
1 tbsp melted butter
2 tsp extra castor sugar
1/2 tsp each of ground coriander, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cloves and cardamom

Preheat Oven to 180C.

Beat butter and sugar until pale and creamy

Add eggs one at a time, beating well

Fold in flour

Spread half the mixture into a greased, base-lined 22cm cake tin.

Cover with generously with custard, using a spatula to smooth out. Keep in mind the cake will rise slightly while cooking when adding custard.

Carefully cover custard with spoonfuls of remaining cake mix (this is the tricky part but never fear! if this part goes wrong and the custard incorporates itself with the batter the cake will still be creamy and delicious).

Arrange apple slices over the top, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar and spices.

Bake 70-80 mins, using the clean-skewer test to check it is ready. Allow to rest before carefully turning out.

I found this recipe last Easter and it was such a hit that I'm often asked to make it at any time of year!
