Apple and Raisin Cake (rubbing in method)
6oz plain flour
Pinch of salt
A little grated nutmeg
4oz unsalted butter
3oz granulated sugar
12oz or 5 medium sized apples (unpeeled, cored and grated)
Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Grease and line an 8 inch cake tin. In a large bowl, sift the flour with the salt and nutmeg and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles large breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar, raisins, apples and eggs without beating. Pour mixture into prepared tin.
Bake for about an hour and then add on 5 minutes at a time until it is cooked through. Mine took about 75 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the top with a little sugar if desired.
