This recipe is a fabulous winter warmer pudding.  Perfect with custard (in my opinion!) and so easy to make my daughter made it for us!

Ingredients

1 unwaxed lemon
3 eggs
175 g butter, softened
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
175 g self-raising flour
2 sweet apples such as Gala or Coxes (about 250 g total weight)
25 g demerara sugar

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 190ºC/fan 170ºC/Gas 5.
  2. Finely zest lemon using Microplane® Adjustable Fine Grater to measure half teaspoon zest. Cut lemon in half and squeeze juice into (250-ml) Prep Bowl to measure 2 tablespoons juice.
  3. Lightly whisk eggs in (500-ml) Easy Read Measuring Cup using Stainless Whisk; set aside.
  4. In Classic Batter Bowl, mix together butter, dark brown sugar, mixed spice, lemon zest, lemon juice and half teaspoon of cinnamon using Small Mix ‘N Scraper®, until well combined.
  5. Gradually add small quantities of egg, then flour, to the butter mixture, mixing each addition until well combined. Spoon cake mixture into Square Baker; level mixture and set aside.
