How to make it

  • preheat the oven to 180c. grease and line a 7inch round cake tin.
  • toss the apple with the lemon juice and set aside. sift the flour and baking powder together then rub in the butter, untill the mix resembles breadcrumbs.
  • stir 115g of the sugar, the apple and the egg, mix well, adding a little of the milk at atime to make a soft doughy mix.
  • transfer into your tin.
  • in a bowl, mix the remaining sugar and cinnamon, sprinkle over the cake mix.
  • bake for 45-50mins. leave to cool in the tin for 10mins, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.
  • enjoy when cooled (if u havent already cut of a sneaky wedge! like i can never resist!!)

    Have made this several times and everyone thinks it is great - makes a moist cake. I add a heaped teaspoon of mixed spice to the mixture and soak the apple in the lemon juice and a few tablespoons of brandy - which replaces the milk.

    Delicious, but very crumbly. I struggled to get it onto the cooling rack. Did I need more milk maybe?

    This looks great, never heard of a Dorset Apple Cake before (or is that just your name for it?)
