Devonshire Apple Cake

2 medium apples, cored and sliced (peeled if you wish)
A bowl of water + 1 tbsp lemon juice
1¼ cup plain flour
1¼ cup sugar
½ cup butter
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
2 eggs
A few drops of almond extract
¼ cup milk


Preheat oven to 175 C or 350 F.

Place the (peeled) cored and sliced apples in the bowlful of water and lemon juice, to stop them from discolouring.

Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and beat till pale and creamy. Beat in the sifted dry ingredients, the almond extract and the milk until well combined.

Grease and line a 9 inch cake tin with greaseproof paper. Gently pour in half the cake batter, smoothing down with a spatula.

Dry the apple slices, and layer on top of the batter. Cover the slices with the remaining batter.

Bake in the preheated oven for an hour and fifteen minutes. If the cake is darkening too quickly, lightly place a piece of foil on top.

Serve warm or cold.
